Default Adding non ISPConfiged mail/ftp users

This may seem trivial but how do I setup a administrator user and mail users for a domain that I have setup without ispconfig?

I would like to mimic ispconfigs user settings because I like them and I am used to that way.

recently I had to setup a site on a ispconfig run server but i had to bypass ispconfig to be able to run a rails app.

how do I setup mail/ftp users for this non ispconfig setup domain the same way I would with ispconfig (not the process of course but the same settings like Maildir, spam settings, ftp access etc.)

thanks so much for your time

You will have to create a linux system user and then put procmail recipes for the mail handling in his home directory like ISPConfig does. Have a look in the homedir of a ispconfig user and execute the command:

ls -la

to see the hidden files. Some of the files have to be customized for the user, e.g. they contain the path to the users home directory.

If the web site is in /var/www/web1, then you must make /var/www/web1 the home directory for that user. Take a look at
Code:
man useradd
Make sure you use a user ID smaller than 10000 to make sure that the users you create manually don't collide with the users created by ISPConfig.
