    FTP page link

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is a way to send a link trough email but the page where the link is directed to is accessed trough a username and password with ftp. What i want is that the page will be able to be viewed for the people that i am sending the link to.

    Any tips or advice?

    Hard for me to explain when i dont exactly now all the correct terms, Thanks

    I think the page may be HTTP protected and not FTP like i stated earlier...

    If it's FTP, you can use

    ftp://username@password:mydomain.com:21/pathToFolderOr/file.doc

    Default port is 21. If you're using that, it can be left off. If you're using something else, it needs to be included.

    For a HTTP password prompt, you'll just have to include the username and password along with the link.

    What he means is you need the following URL...

    ftp://username@password:mydomain.com:21/pathToFolderOr/file.doc

    username = your FTP username provided by your hosting
    password = your FTP password.
    mydomain.com = your domain name.
    pathToFolderOr/file.doc = the relative file path.

    There's an inherent security risk linking to FTP secured content though, they'll know your password and could hack your account!
