Can I Programmatically Create FTP Accounts? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys, I'm primarily a PHP developer and am unsure if this is possible on Azure.

    So here's the scenario...

    When users sign up to my web application I would like to automatically create an FTP space for them on my Azure hosting account using the credentials they supply in a form, I only want them to be able to access their folder on my host.

    Is this possible with Azure as I have only just started using it and cant really find an answer for this?

    Thanks, Nick

  • Hi Nick,

    Unfortunately, that is not possible today as the granularity of FTP access is at site level. Credentials either give an access to the whole site or nothing.

    So either you would have to create a site for each user and then somehow sync the content or use a different method of getting the content up to your site.
