How do I create a new FTP user?
I want to create a Web hosting site. I purchased a reseller account, but I don't know what to do. I have enough experience with PHP to create a database and a folder for the user, but I don't know how to create a new FTP user so that the visitor can automatically have generated for him/her instantly a FTP login and restricted access to a folder. I would also like to know if (and how) I can add quotas, max. file sizes, and file type restrictions to that FTP user, but for now I just want to figure out how to make one. (Kudos if you can tell me also the other things.)
I have searched for hours, asked questions on other forums, and practically given up. How can I do this?
I must have FTP installed on my Web host, since I can connect to FTP. How is it that so many Web hosts can easily create FTP accounts for people, but I can't figure it out?!
I don't know what FTP program is being used. I could maybe PM you a phpinfo() result; I don't know if that'll help. I don't know where else to look.
My hosting account has no disabled PHP functions, and I also have Cron jobs, if that helps. I don't think I can install other software on it, but I really don't know. I'm using a master reseller plan on Kryptonite Host (kryptonitehost.com), if that helps, too.
Please, I just want to know how to create FTP users. This is really frustrating me.
Thanks in advance for any help you might bring me!
