Edit Disk Space Allocation (FTP)

Overview

You can modify the amount of disk space allocated to any of the available FTP accounts. Follow the instructions below.

NOTE: Your overall FTP disk quota is limited by the total disk space available for your hosting account. For example: If you have 5000 MB of disk space in your hosting account and set a FTP account's disk quota to 9999 MB, the quota will still be 5000 MB.

  2. When the page loads, you will see an "FTP Accounts" table consisting of the following information split into six columns:
    • Log In - This entry shows the login/username for the associated FTP account.
