    I have question about Ispconfig 3, on debian, with pure-fpdd.

    I noticed that I add sites via ispconfig3 panel, and create ftp acconts for users, ispconfig does this way: owner=sitename (webX) group=client (clientX).

    So, when I eg. create 50 sites via panel, to upload data into them I need to create 50 separate ftp accounts also ?

    Or maybe there is possibility to log in as user/client and upload content to each directory in one ftp session ?

    If so (will be different sites), what about uploaded files owner/group ?

    That's not possible as that would bring a lot of permission/ownership problems with it.

    Thank's for your answer.

    I solved it this way:

    Destination directory that ftp connect is just matter of setting of 'dir' in ispconfig sql db.
    Edit it is enough.

    Problems with owner and group can be simply solved from command line, just like this:
    # chown web1:client1 -R /var/www/clients/client1/web1/
    # chown web2:client1 -R /var/www/clients/client1/web2/

    It looks also easy to script it, so i suggest solve it as useful ispconfig freature :)
