    I guess the manually created users are missing, as ispconfig requires seom special parameters for its users. Instead of creating the users manually, it would have been better that you asked us to help you find the problem.

    Please check the /etc/group and /etc/gshadow files, if there are really two lines for the sshuers group, delete the lines which do not contain any users. Then check the syntax of the files with the command:

    Thank you very much. I delete duplicities from these files and all working ok.

    P.S. I created users manualy, but I set right UID (50xx), right shell (/bin/false), right home directory (/var/www/clients/clientx/webxx), right group (clientx), login alloved with No password , warnining days 7, maximum days 9999.

    Is it ok?

    Looks fine. Please test if a login is really not possible to these users with ssh without password, just to be sure. And you should add them to the sshusers group too.
