How to ringfence php access to a specific folder

hi,
I'm learning and doing some dev work on a bluehost server. If i give ftp access to someone to a specific folder, it seems they can access other parts of the server outside of that folder by using php.

What steps do I need to take to ringfence that activity and restrict it to one folder (and it's subfolders)?

Many thanks

Thanks for the suggestions, it looks like this may be tricky for me as a server newbie, but I will keep this info on hand for when I have resources, or possibly just open a another separate server account.

Thanks again for the input.
