    I am trying to find out if it is possible to create just ftp-accounts for clients of one website.
    What I am trying to achieve is:
    website x has some clients that will provide datafiles to this website system. They will be ftp'd to the website.
    Instead of the webx_clientname design, I rather would like it to be clientname (username) and that the ftp-area is what would be the same as for webx_username.

    can this be done in ispc2, if not, is this a feature that you wish to create?

    You can switch off the webx_ prefix, but I strongly advise against it because you might get collisions with other usernames! :eek:

    I see the concern. Is this a setting that is global, or can it be applied on one account only?

    Because then I could create a sub-domain and create client-accounts. Normally these won't need e-mail either, but I guess I can (must) live with that...

    Thanks for the valuable information.

    This is a global setting.

    So I noticed. Are there any plans on adding this as a site-by-site setting?

    Feature Request I guess ;)

    ISPConfig 2 isn't under active development anymore. We just do security updates. You should consider switching to ISPConfig 3.

    Yes an upgrade to ispc3 is something to consider, but you know the saying:
    ' When work, why fix '...
