    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.

    yes but what would i type in to create a user with access to the root of the domain folder.

    and same with ones that i create in the subfolder users/ of the domain

    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
    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.
