Removing Anonymous FTP access

Removing Anonymous FTP access is a simple and easy process. Please take note that removing Anonymous FTP access does not delete the public_ftp folder (you should not delete this folder, it is a system folder for your hosting account to function properly) and the files stored in it, but diable the 'guest' login from accessing the public_ftp folder.

To remove Anonymous FTP access:

  1. Click Ftp Manager button in your Cpanel hosting account control panel.

  2. Click Anonymous FTP Controls option.

  3. Uncheck the tick from the Allow anonymous access to tick box or the Allow anonymous upload to tick boxes.

  4. Click Save Settings button and the Anonymous access is then disabled.
