    the easiest way is to chmod all of the files to read only for that user. What ftp server are you using?

    It's proftpd, I've chrooted the users, though I don't want to have to chroot the files if possible.

    I would just like to modify his account to a read-only state.

    Like something you might use for an anonymous account or something.

    Code:
    <Directory /home/tyler/ftp>
    <Limit WRITE>
    DenyAll
    </Limit>
    </Directory>
    This is from my proftpd.conf. http://www.castaglia.org/proftpd/doc...onfigFile.html is a good site about proftpd.
