    Create user account for only one folder?


    Hello guys, this is my first post on this forum, I came here in search for an FTP solution.. I need help on one thing.. I want to create an FTP account but the account is only allowed to access one folder.

    I am doing this because I have a freeelancer that is hired to fix an error on one of my sites, but I don't want to him see all my other sites and or hack them or anything.

    Is this possible? Thank you.

    Yes it's possible. Is this a home server or is the domain hosted somewhere? If hosted somewhere, then when you set up an FTP account, it should ask you the folder to assign access to.

    If it's your own server, what OS are you running? What FTP server?
