How do I Add an FTP User to the ‘FTP Users’ Group?

First, log onto your server via Remote Desktop, and navigate to ‘Server Manager‘ by clicking on ‘Start –> Right-Click Computer –> Manage’.

Next, expand the ‘Configuration‘ heading, click on ‘Local Users and Groups‘, and then click on ‘Users‘.

Right-click on ‘Users‘ then select ‘New User‘.

Use a “smart password”, which consists of case-sensitive alpha-numeric characters and symbols for maximum security. Set your password expiration options, and click on ‘Create’.

Now, we need to add the user as part of the ‘FTP Users‘ group.

Right-Click the new user in the right-hand pane and select ‘Properties‘.

Select the ‘Member Of‘ tab then click ‘add‘, then click ‘Advanced‘, and then click ‘Find Now‘. Scroll down the list of users and select the ‘FTP Users‘ group.

You should now see the ‘FTP Users‘ group in the ‘Member Of‘ tab.

Click ‘OK’.

The new user has now been added to the appropriate FTP Users group.

The final step in the process is creating the FTP site in IIS.
