    Hi. i've set up my server using this tutorial:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-lenny-debian-5.0-with-bind-and-dovecot-ispconfig-3

    Everything is working fine but I would like to access all my websites with only one ftp account. That way, it would be easy to edit them and also it would be easy to remember only one username/password instead of 200 :D

    I've tried creating a virtual user in pure-ftp but there were some problems regarding the file permissions.

    Is there any way to accomplish this?

    If you allow root access via secure shell you can use secure ftp to access all accounts on the server BUT you will have permission problems because all files uploaded that way will be owned by root so your webserver will likely complain.

    It's easier and safer to just setup your ftp client to remember the username and passwords for the various accounts!

    Yes, and when you are done uploading files, its just use chown and change user to right one

    I already tried that, but it's a pain in the ass :p
