    I'm not sure if I'm just missing something or what, but I can't figure this out...

    I have about 20 domains I'm hosting, and I can't figure out how (from ISPConfig) to create an FTP user that has access to the root of the /var/www folder so I can access all of them. I can create a different user for every domain, but that is just a pain in the butt.

    Is there just something I'm not seeing?

    Have you cared to check the 2nd tab on the "Create ftp user" screen ? (ispconfig3 that is)

    if it's ispconfig2, you should log onto your shell , and
    useradd -d /var/www -s /bin/true <username>

    Ok, when I went to the 2nd tab, I saw where I could change the default directory, but I still don't have permission to create/upload files to the domains not assigned to me in ispconfig.

    Any other suggestions?

    Create one customer, put all domains under that customer, create ftp account.

    I guess I don't know what I'm doing... lol

    So I created a new client, assigned all sites to it, but when I go to create an FTP account it still wants me to assign a single domain name for that account.
