how to monitor a ftp account

  • Answered
I created an ftp account for someone else to upload files for me. I'd like to be automatically notified when someone started an ftp session and uploaded files (by e-mail). Is it possible to set up?

Hello ooartur,

Thank you for your question. There is nothing in-place on the server for this. You can limit FTP accounts to a specific folder, when they are created.

You could also code a webpage for uploading/downloading files, then monitor access to that. But, you would have to create that type of site.

On a VPS or Dedicated server with root access, you have access to the full FTP log.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
