    I was wondering how I go about password protecting different folders on my ftp webspace..also can I have different username/passwords for each folder? and can I set certain folders to be uploadable only (ie people can only upload to them and cannot download content from them)?
    Reason I'm asking is I want to host DJ mixing competitions and want my forum members to able to upload their mix to a competition folder and NOT be able to download other contestant's mixes.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Regards... Colin :)

    yeah, thats what having usernames/passwords is for, download serv-u ftp server and ull quickly see that u can do that kind of stuff by locking them into a folder, or setting permissions for each username

    pure-ftpd if you are on linux. If you use FreeBSD, check for the pure-ftpd tutorial on http://bsdguides.org/ as it allows you to set per user limits.
