    i asked myself where to create an "root" FTP Account in ISPConfig to transfer files for management things. But I cant find a way in the Panel. Is there a possibility and if yes how?

    If you want to login as root user, use SSH (SFTP) and not FTP. There are never root FTP users, that is forbidden by all major FTP server software for security reasons and not related to the use of ISPConfig.
