I'm trying to get my webhost to grant me permissions to the daily backup folder used by sql server. I'd like to use FTP to access all files in that folder.
i'd like to give the host a nice easy commandline(s) to execute so they don't have an excuse to come back to me with any sort of security or complexity complaints.
So the commandlines should:
- create the user account (with password)
- explicitly disable all sorts of access except FTP
- set the FTP homepage (and permissions) of that account to nothing more the folder containing our db's backup
[And i'd like to not have to explain to you guys how it is that i come to have such a lame webhost that i have to provide them directions like this.]
