Dunno if you already resolved your question yourself.
In ISPConfig you can either create a shell user account for that Web / User or the one I prefer is using a piece of software called "putty" Putty lets you connect via SSH as any existing user on you server. However, this way, you'll have to watch again for file permissions.
