  • Path: Leave empty

Web Browser

Creating Private Client Logins

  • Login to your FTP through the web interface or ftp software
  • Create a new folder

The name of the folder will be the private user name and password:

  • Enter the first word, to be the user name, then a double hyphen
  • Enter the password (use 5 or more characters, numbers and letters)
  • Example: newclient–pass!55

The user name becomes “newclient” and the password is “pass!55”

To test your private folder, log out, then log in with the user name and password you just created.

You can also set an expiration date. Just add a date to the end of the folder name in the format mmddyyyy. For example, newclient–pass!55–06012012. The access for your new client would expire June 1, 2012.
