We have a new documentation site for cPanel & WHM! You can find our new documentation site at docs.cpanel.net.
We will continue to maintain our API documentation on this server.
The FTP Accounts table allows you to manage existing FTP accounts.
To change an FTP account's password, perform the following steps:
0indicates a weak password, while
100indicates a very secure password.
If your server uses the ProFTPd FTP server, you cannot use quotas. For more information, contact your hosting provider.
To change an FTP account's quota, perform the following steps:
Click Change Quota.
To remove an FTP account, perform the following steps:
Click the desired deletion option:
Delete Account — Remove the FTP account only. This will not remove the files that the FTP account's home directory contains.
Delete Account and Files — Remove the FTP account and all of the files that the FTP account's home directory contains.
Only use this option with extreme caution. If the FTP account that you delete can access the
public_html directory, this option automatically removes the
public_html directory and all of its contents, which will break your website.
Cancel — Do not delete the account.
You must install the FTP client on your computer before you download and run the script file.
To configure an FTP client, perform the following steps:
Click FTP Configuration File under the desired FTP client's logo. You can choose between Core FTP or Cyberduck.
Open the configuration script file that downloaded to your computer. The FTP client automatically opens, configures itself, and connects to your FTP server.
You cannot delete FTP accounts from the Special FTP Accounts section of the interface.
The Special FTP Accounts section of the interface lists your cPanel account's administrative FTP accounts. This includes your cPanel account's primary FTP account and a log maintenance account.
