VPS question
« on: March 25, 2014, 05:38:58 PM »
Hello Forum Members,

I know this may sound silly but this is the first time for me to use VPS. I am getting an outsourcer to load a site on here for me but I don't want him to be able to change my primary passwords etc in case he locks me out for some reason
   
What's the best way to avoid this?

Create a new FTP account from cPanel and restrict access to the public_html directory. He will just be able to upload the data under this directory and he will not be able to access other directories. Will he require access to MySQL database?

Hi Turkey.. Thank you for your reply.

What if I want him to provide him with MySQL database access as well ? Will he be able to manage it via FTP ?

@whackowebmaster MySQL databases cannot be accessed using FTP. You will have to provide him with cPanel access. As you have a VPS & you hold the root password, the outsourcer will have access to that specific cPanel account and nothing else.

Once he is done with performing the work, change the cPanel account password. Doing this, he will not be able to gain account access unless you provide him with new password.
