How to Create an Additional Web Disk Account in cPanel?


You can use cPanel login details to access your Web Disk. You can also create an additional account for accessing a specific directory on your account so that it can be useful for security purposes.


1. Log into your cPanel account. (e.g., www.example.com/cPanel )


2. In the Files section, click the Web Disk icon.


3.
Under Create an Additional Web Disk Account, enter the details of the new account you wish to create.
Username: folderx
Password: Enter your new password or click the Password Generator button to generate a random password.
Directory: You can leave it blank, but it will grant access to the entire directory. If you wish to allow access to only a specific folder, enter the folder location, such as public_html/folderx (the user will be only able to access /folderx).
Permissions: Select your option.


Note: If you are using the Windows OS, you will need to mark Enable Digest Authentication. However, if the server has an SSL certificate signed by a recognized certificate authority and you can make an SSL connection over port 2078, you do not need to enable this.


4. Now click on the Create button, and your new additional account will be created. You can use your new login details to access your Web Disk.

    Mark - FoxesTalk
  • RackSRV is truly a quality co-location provider. Nothing is too much trouble for Jon, and the main co-location site is well-connected with multi-gigabit diverse routed links to the London PoPs. But, most importantly, the level of communication when issues arise is the best I have ever experienced in this industry. C...

  • Overall experience is excellent! Very friendly, helpful and attentive support team - willing to go that extra mile. Price - very fair, somewhat undervalued! Have recommended to several friends... they have all spoken of the great service, even in comparison to the big companies that they all used to use.
