How to set up an additional Web Disk account

1. Log in to your cPanel account.

2. Scroll to the Files section.

3. Click on Web Disk.

4. Under Create an Additional Web Disk Account, type the username you want to use in the Username textbox.

5. In the Password text box, type the password. To create a strong password automatically, click the Password Generator button.

6. Retype the password in the Password (Again) box.

7. cPanel automatically fills in the user’s Web Disk directory in the Directory box. This is based on the username you typed in earlier.

8. The default permission of the Web Disk directory is for full Read-Write access. If you are creating an account for another user who you do not wish to have full privileges, click on ‘read-only’.

9. You must enable Digest Authentication if you use Windows versions Vista, 7, 8, or 10 and you are accessing Web Disk over a clear text, unencrypted connection.

You do not need to enable Digest Authentication if the domain has a recognised, signed SSL certificate or if you are able to connect to Web Disk with SSL over port 2078.

10. Click Create to complete the account setup process.
