Default Creating a user for website!

Hi folks,

I love ISPConfig but now am working to configure a server for 1 website only and I need to create a user that can modify /var/www/html folder, also have access to ftp and for email as well...

Any tutorial will be helpful!!

Thank you!
Eli Acevedo

You mean that you want to run this server without installing ispconfig and the server shall just run one website? In that case, you use the user that apache runs under. E.g. for Debain and Ubuntu,, this is www-data. So you run this command:

chown www-data:www-data /var/www/html

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