Creating ftp accounts with Putty
How can I create ftp accounts with Putty and give them access to only some specific folders? For example I want to create a user called test_user and give him access to public_html/test_user.

Putty doesn't do anything but give you shell access. SSH. The terminal. Command line.
As for the question, which by the way has nothing to do with Apache, it depends what FTP server you have installed. Generally you add a user to the system itself (a real user account) and set their home directory to wherever. Normal Unix permissions take care of the rest but the FTP server may support jails.
So now I'm wondering, do I move this to the Linux or FTP forum. What FTP server do you have? How familiar are you with the command line?

How are you creating the user and what are you doing to test the account?
