    Hello and Welcome.
    I'm not sure you would want FTP, so I'm including an SSH tutorial link. Hopefully it will help you understand what it is that you need to do.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    yep I want FTP lol it's because I'll have 40+ different sites on the same server and I dont want to have to login to the system users individually to access one site, I'd like to use one main FTP system user to access them all so i dont have to deal with that

    Thanks for your Reply though ill check into it, but I didnt see details on what I needed

    if you have root access, and ssh is enabled, then you can scp or sftp, whichever you prefer. most ftp clients also support sftp just by changing the port to 22, filezilla is a free one that does. there is also winscp if you are a windows user. you will connect in with root access (if thats how you login) and be able to access the entire file system
