    How to monitor user ftp accounts?

    I've bought some webspace of a reseller. I've got WHM and cPanel access and would like to know how I could access hosted domain accounts, to make sure users arn't uploading any illegal material.

    For illegal material just check if a user is using a lot of bandwidth, if they are, see what is using all that bandwidth and see if it's legal. Otherwise, just wait for a complaint and handle it promptly and you should have no problems. You should not have to investigate every file uploaded, or track every file uploaded.

    Just make sure your terms and conditions inform the user that they are responsible for all content in their webspace!

    I definitely agree, you can't be responsible for every file uploaded!

    Ofcourse I agree with whats been said above, however I thought it might be benificial to do some random checks every now and again.

    I know school IT admins do it, to make sure students arn't filling up their space with mp3's and such, just thought it might apply for webhosting as well.
