We are running Ubuntu 8.10 with ISPconfig3.

I understand and we have FTP running for clients/sites with no problem. What we need to have is a couple of accounts/system users be able to ftp in and go most anywhere on the system. Do I need to install another FTP server or is there a way to set this up through the FTP server that was installed with ISPconfig?

Yes, I'm new at this. Not sure of interactions and such.

ISPConfig uses virtual FTP users and not linux system users for email accounts. If a user shall be able to login with ftp you will have to create a virtual FTP user for him in ispconfig.

I understand about creating virtual FTP users and have done so.

I remotely manage my servers and it is necessary for me to be able to access all of the server via FTP. My question is if there is a way to create a user able to do this through ISPconfig or not. And if not, do I install a different FTP server to accomplish this. I am not sure about conflicts and such.

Normally you use scp / sftp for this as it works over SSH and can be used with the root user and not FTP.
