Smile Create all websites under the same Linux account

Hi:
As I know, ISPConfig creates every website with its own linux (UID) user.
Is SSH login is forbidden, it could be an option to create all websites under the same linux account.
Also, for ftp access, all users must use the same UID. pure-ftp can use that configuration an ensure that every ftp user can only write on its own directory.

Why?

If all directories has the same UID, it wil be possible to migrate an user (or a group of users) from one server to another server (perhaps migrate all users to a more powerfull server).

Thanks

Using the same UNIX user will also ensure that anyone will have access to your folders/files. And this is not what we would want now, would we ?

I thinking in an option.
This option is of interest if you does not allow ssh access and restricts ftp access to the web-user root and descendants directories.
.
The othe question is:
With the current website ==> UID implementation, How can I change a user from one server to another server?

May be a solution, but what to do if the UID is already used at the destination server?.

You can do this already with the current user layout, as ipconfig ensures that every user is unique in a multiserver system. So you can ewasily migrate a website to another server.

Thats not the case as ispconfig ensures that users are unique across all servers.

Using one account for all sites might only be an option for a non production inhouse sysetm as it far to insecure for hosting systems exposed in the internet with custonmer accounts.
