Creating FTP accounts


Creating FTP accounts


If you have an EUserv webspace plan, you have a certain amount of storage space for your Homepage and/or Web applications.

In this storage you have to save all your data to be accessed via your website. In order to upload the data to your webspace, you need the File Transfer Protocol (FTP), on the other hand it is transferred again on FTP accounts.

Creating accounts

In the EUserv customer service center, you have the possibility to create and manage different FTP accounts.

Choose your webspace contract for which you want to create the FTP accounts.


Once you have selected your webspace contract, click on "FTP-Accounts".


Here you can set up your webspace FTP accounts. By clicking on "Anlegen" under "Neuen FTP-Account" to open the corresponding menu.


Creating FTP account

In this part of the EUserv customer service center, you can create the desired FTP accounts. Each FTP account consists of a fixed part (e.g., ftp111111) and a variable part. The variable portion can be freely chosen by you and must contain letters and/or numbers.

The variable part is define by the "FTP-Benutzername". In the field below ("Passwort setzen:" und "Passwort erneut eingeben: "), is set your password and need to repeat it for safety purposes. It is important to note that your password is at least 8 characters, more than 16 characters long and must be provided with at least two uppercase letters, lowercase letters and numbers. Note here that the variable part does not change!

Finally, you should decide which destination folder you want to assign the FTP account ("Zielverzeichnis:"). Thereby, it allows you to define the user rights of the FTP-Accounts. An FTP account, for example, the destination directory is the folder "www" can access all the information located therein.

The folder "www" is the root directory. Now set the target directory as the folder "www/data/hompage", so this is the root director. This FTP account can now be edited all the data in the folder "homepage", but not the overlying folders.

You can also create in your own FTP account, for example your web designer, without entering your webspace system. For your family members who only want to upload a few pictures, however should have no contact with the home infrastructure.




Editing/deleting FTP account

To change the options, click on the overview page "FTP-Accounts" right next to the FTP account on "Ändern".

If you want to delete a FTP account, just click on "Löschen".

By clicking on "Start" under "Reorganisation" you can erase all data including FTP accounts. This process can not be reverse to change!

In addition, web server log files are automatically created for your statistics. Please note here that the memory of these log files will be factored in your webspace quota space. If you don´t want to use this option, you can activate the EUserv customer service center "noLogfile" mode. Here, however, all of the previous created log files will be deleted and the storage space will be enabled again and also the statistics will be deactivated.
