Enable and Disable FTP Users

Scott Conboy shared this idea 7 years ago

Very simple feature to implement to ftp user accounts and make it much easier to manage when hiring contractors to do work on website. Create FTP account, enable user - contractor finishes work, disable account. Rehire contractor, enable, - finish job or get fired - disable or delete. I think this is a very common sense approach that would enhance the Cpanel experience.

This feature is possible as part of the Sub Accounts feature added in cPanel & WHM Version 54. You can read about it in the 54 Release notes.

While the following workaround does not preclude this feature from being a valid feature request, I do want to mention that users can mimic this behavior simply by changing the FTP account password to something random that the contractor/FTP user is unaware of, then changing it back when looking to restore access.


On that note, I would of course like to hear further feedback on this of course and any other similar use cases.
