How do I make a FileZilla ftp access folder where I put jpeg pictures of a project and my friends can see in it but no one else can?

Hello Rocky42,

Thanks for your question about creating an FTP folder for your friends. Limiting access to FTP is done by a specific user and password. You can create FTP accounts through the cPanel and then provide the user name and password to give to your friends. We have a tutorial that can guide you in creating FTP accounts: how to create FTP accounts.

If you have any further questions please let us know.
