multiple sites per user
 
is there a way to have multiple sites per user? yes, im new to ISPconfig, and have created a new site, and user (for ftp), and when i make a second site it seems i need to make a new user.

what i need is to have several domains (sites) for one user, login with ftp and see all their different sites.

possible?

You can have as many sites per client as you like. Every has its own ftp account.

right, so each 'client' can have many sites, but each sites gets one ftp login?

it seems the "login data" for the client is for the ISPConfig panel only, not ftp?

or maybe i got some settings wrong. the user data for each site (web3_name), works fine though.

Yes. Every site runs under its own Linux system user to isolate sites, so that other sites get not affected when a site gets hacked.

If you want to add more then one domain to a site e.g. wehn you use a cms system that is multodomain capable, then add the other domains as co-domains.

Yes.

ok, think i got it, thanks!

still would be nice to access multiple sites with one ftp user account.

Accessing mutliple sites thru one FTP account is for sure possible, one of the ways is to create soft links to the appropriate documentroot of the respective domains.

However, it will have a problem -- as till has mentioned, that when the ftp account is hacked, all the domains are affected.

I don't believe that a good web administrator will be "unhappy" to use different FTP accounts for different domains.

I hate to bring up an old thread, but I want to voice my support of having the ability to have multiple sites under one FTP user. I understand the risks but I want it to be MY choice to take that risk.

If you really want , then please create soft links and you will be able to do what you want.
