Mulitple Folders allowed via ftp

There should be an option when creating or managing ftp account to provide the account with multiple folders, they can have access to so that they are locked to just those folders. So if you have a user that all their job is upload media files, all that user gets access do is those two folders so they are jailed to those folders. There is a way of doing this however it requires more time then it should to make this process work. When we should just be able to process this request in cPanel without having to use the command line.

It is unlikely that something of this nature will be implemented into cPanel & WHM. The primary reason for this being that the underlying technologies (proftpd, pure-ftpd, and the *nix user system) do not support multiple homedirs. I am not even sure how such a behavior would be able to be realistically implemented into those underlying technologies.


If you can share in which ways the underlying technologies used are able to be leveraged in the way you desire, this feature request would be able to be considered further.
