FTP 101 the basics
I have installed IISConfig 2.0.9 on Ubuntu 5 (debian)
I used the Perfect setup howto , and installed Webmail(UebiMiau)+phpmyadmin.
I tried setting up a demo website site with sucess , created e-mail users with success.
Proftp is running
But FTP is still a mystery :
If i create a new site www.foo.com ,
enable ftp access
and created email user email@example.com ( user web1_johndoe)
enabled administrator for the user
Q1 : What is the FTP username and pass which i need to give to my customer to ftp to www.foo.com ?
If i use the web1_johndoe then i get the listing for the user's web and maildir, but not the actual website's root.
I created another site , which has the same domain as the machine hostname ( our host company name) .
When I setup the same structure :
create site >>> enable ftp access >>> create mail user >>enable administrator.
and logged in(ftp client) with this user ( web2_webmaster ) , i got:
----cgibin, log, maildir, phptmp, ssl, user, web ---- folders .
Q2: Will my users always see extra folders when they need to ftp their websites to our machine ? EG. maildir & web
I am relativly new to linux , so parden me if this is misunderstood by me.
unfotunately the forum does not allow a search on keyword "ftp" , but i tried to understand the postings i could find related to ftp wihout avail.
thanks for a great howto install doc.
Anybody using Debain should read :
sample as per Q1
Only the admin can access a web site's docroot.
commercial ISP usage
thanks for the reply Falco :)
Are anyone else using this in a commercial environment.
If I had to give the FTP access to clients (normal users), and they see all the funny files , and start to delete them they will mess up their whole account.
Q1: Is there a way to give them FTP so that they will only see the web folder ?
like with IIS(windows) and webserver Linux where website is stored under /var/www/xxx and the user files under different location eg. /home/user.
Q2: Or do we have to train our users never to delete the other files , and teach them to always publish/upload/sync their website to the "web" directory .
Train then not to touch the "maildir,users, phptmp, log directories and the .xxx files"
I need to make this as fail save for laymen and resellers when the want to upload and edit their websites.
I also see that all the e-mail users also have FTP access , to their repective home directories though.
Q3 :Can one disable them ?
This server is stil in our testing zone , and we are evaluating ISPconfig as a panel for our users, most which will never use the actual interface but will use the webmail, ftp , hosting facility.
I hope my question is clear enough.
Luck is what happens when preperation meets oppertunity
1) Not without rewriting a bigger part of ISPConfig.
2) You are talking about the admin of the web. Normally a admin shall be able to delete files from users he is the admin for. Other files that are causing trouble when he deletes them have permissions that he can see them but not delete them.
3) If you want disable FTP for non admin users you will have to chnage the ISPConfig sources.
ftp via IE
I can log in using Web-FTP>Web Selection.
However using IE I can't get it to work. I've tried 'ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org' then when asked I enter
but it doesn't work. Am I using the correct format?
I figuared it out! kinda..
If I use 'ftp://myip'
Then it works perfectly.. however I'd like to know how I can set it up so my clients can use ftp://domain.com or ftp://ftp.domain.com or anything other than the IP.
