Hi,

I just started using QnEFTP, and LOVE it. What I want to know is if I can make certain folders only visible to me (Admin) and other users I choose and set up accounts for?

Thanks,

Osiris

Yes, you can do this:
Let's say you have a folder called c:\downloads\ and a sub folder
c:\downloads\adminonly\

First create the admin user and set the home directory to c:\downloads and give it the the desired permissions.
Admin will now have access to c:\downloads and all it's subfolders.

Now create another user and also set the home directory to c:\downloads.
Then add a new virtual directory:
Physical Path: c:\downloads\adminonly\
Alias: <enter a single space>
Disable all permissions and click OK

You have now disabled access to this folder for this specific users.

Of course you can also add a special virtual folder that only the admin account has access to.

Pablo,

Thanks for the reply. It worked a treat! One other question if I may, is do you have or do you know of any software that will re-direct users to a webpage I designate (Will be a server status page.) when the server is down for maintenance?

Thanks,

Osiris (Karl Shaw)
