Your question doesn't make much sense to me. FTP and SSH have little if anything to do with one another. If you need a new ftp user, then you have to arrange that with the users/groups that are on the system. The FTP server may also have an impact with that. If you are running user/pass FTP, then all you would need to do is add a new user of group ftp, and they should be good. Doing it through SSH is no different than setting it up on the command line. If you need more help, please tell us specifically what FTP server you're running, and also list the users and groups that have access to the FTP data.

Peace,
JimBass

If u have a user in ur system. and someone with ftp conects to ur computer as that user, the n he can make all his way up in yor disk and ur partitions.

to make an ftp user, u just do an oordinary user ,with his name and his passwrd, he can log on.

that simple. from a web browser can't do that, but from one console............

To add a user through the command line, the command is
Code:
#useradd
You must be full root (su -) on many systems to have that command. You must also know what group(s) you want the new user to be a member of. I would suggest doing
Code:
man useradd
and reading up on the command. We can't help you without knowing what ftp server the box is running, and also the permissions it requires.

Peace,
JimBass
