Default is admispconfig user good for rdiff-backup?

Hi all

A would like use rdiff-backup to backup my ispconfig servers .. I followed this howto http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_rdiff_backup
but I cannot use user root because a set

PermitRootLogin no
in sshd_config for security reasons.

admispconfig user is goot alternatives due to rights on web*.
Is it safe and good idea to change password for admispconfig (because I don't know it ;-) ) and use admispconfig user for rdiff-backup?

Thanks for any help

I dont see any problems with that. admispconfig is just a normal user account with no extra priveliges except that it is member in all website groups. But be careful, the admispconfig user is able to read the login info for the mysql database.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Thank you for replay till ..

Finnaly I decided to use root account .. I set

PermitRootLogin without-password
so root can log in with certificate only. It is good too I think
