Creating New Users in FileZilla
In order to begin uploading files to the server via FTP with FileZilla, you will need to create at least one FTP user account. To create a user, you will need to do the following:

2. Click on Edit, and then select Users.



3. Within the Users section, click on Add to add a user. 


 
4. Type in a FTP User Name you would like to add. If you would like to add the member to a Group, you can select it from the drop-down menu (see Group setup below). Click OK.



5. Under the Account settings on the User section, check the Password box. Enter in a password for this FTP user.


 
5. Next, select Shared folders under Page on the left of the Users section.



6. Click Add and browse to the folder you would like this user to have access to (click "set as Homedir" if this is the only folder you would like the user to access).


 
7. Select the permissions that you want to provide the user.



8. Click OK to finish creating the FTP user.


Creating New Groups in FileZilla
If you would like to create users that will only have access to the same folder or group of folders, you would then want to setup a new group. To create a group, you will need to do the following:

2. Click on Edit, and then Groups.

3. Click Add and type in your Group name.

4. Under Page on the left, choose Shared folders.
