Then, when some client want some of this packages, i just copy it inside the web folder.. then all run smoothly... ftp access, modules install, everything "perfect"...
So do you mean that you then copy whilst logged in a either admin or sudo? Because I still don't understand how the folders get the right permissions.

Every other site I have either setup and or administer via a commercial hosting solution uses the same account for both the MYSQL and the FTP account. Wouldn't this be easier, surely there is a way to do this? Why does the MYSQL require yet another unix account?
