    excuse my ignorance but how can I create to where a customer of mine that I am hosting there site whats to be able to have a couple of there customers be able to get a file from them that is to large for email, (50 megs) from FTP, I know I can create a anon. ftp site but isnt there a way I can just create a user that they can just go to ftp.therecompany.com to grab a file they put up? Will it have to be a IP based address or can it be a name based? THANK YOU!!! Jon

    Hi Jon,

    I always tell my clients to create a webuser for these purposes.

    But if I was use I would let them download it through http, because ftp won't count on traffic. So if they download the file 20 times for example you'll loose 1GB traffic. That isn't to worse but what if they do it 2000 times. Well you get my drift.

    regards,
    DieMonde

    Hi Jon,

    Well you now have to upload the file to that folder. The whole purpose of this is, that they can't see any other files or do any damage.

    Thanks diemonde

    You have been such a help, I thought I would stick with a winner. Would you know why whenever I try to ftp into it, there is allways about a 20 second wait to hook up? Also Do you do any kind of side work on linux servers, the work I am thinking of is setting up a script for seeing all the specs of the dedicated server I am leasing, the people I am leasing from recomended http://phpsysinfo.sourceforge.net, also maybe to install and configure backup program that comes with Plesk? If so what would be the cost involved. Thanks again, Jon Acord

    Hi Jon,

    Well I didn't figured everything out. This was just a thing I knew. So you probally can find better people for the things you requested, but if you have interesting ideas I am always willing to look into it. Can you tell me why you want to run phpsysinfo on your system?

    On the 20 seconds thingie, I believe there is something about it in the faq of PSA.

    grtz,

    I want to see if what they told me I am buying (leasing) is what it is. I am going thru ezzi.net and all my sites are down again, I am looking for another dedicated server, any recomendations. I just transferred an important site over there and now they are down along with there email, I am screwed. Does anyone know anything about this company, www.ezzi.net
