Connect Linux userid to webid
I have a few webs on an ISPConfig server. How can I enable "Connect Linux userid to webid" now? I want the existing webs to get a connection... or do I need to do that connection manually?

Why do you want to enable that? This function is only useful for mirror servers in a multiserver setup.

Because I want to setup a mirror server... ;-)

@Till: What should I do?

You can enable it now but it will work only for new sites and not existing ones and you might get uid conflicts as this option and. Mirror setup in general is normally setup before you add the first site.

Why can't I simply:

# cat /etc/passwd

and then:

# cd /var
# find . -uid 5004 | xargs chown 10001

and finally the same for the group?

Do I need to change ispapps and ispconfig as well?

Thanks for your help,

I have tried to modify the UID and GID manually and I have not encountered any problems so far.

Some things to keep in mind when making these changes are:

1) The WebID is added to the "Start ID for userid/webid connect"
2) The Client is created when its first Web is created
3) ispapps and ispconfig do not need to be modified

Have fun,
