    I have Ispconfig 3.2.7p1, debian bullseye 10 in multiserver config.
    My old system which im migrating over to new has a dedicated server which a group of web devs use for themselves, i set them up with a reseller account, but this does not have options under the sites tab.
    Currently when i create a website with access to emails i have to add the client, the site, the email domain, the mailboxes, then i have to head over to dns to add the records for the domain, then change the mailserver record as it is always the IP of the webserver and alter it to the IP of the mailserver. why isnt it always automatic or at least a tick box for create auto dns settings y/n?
    when you have access to "fasthosts", "123 reg" etc you always have access to the dns for your domains and the additional settings etc. (we need this feature(well i do))
    awsome work btw!!!
    I have looked and cannot find a way to give them permission to have options.
    So, my question's are:
    1. how can a reseller have access to the options tab under sites to add apache directives etc
    2. access to DNS
    3. can i create a special user or another admin which has access to only that specific server but be part of my multi server setup (no is the answer here, i can feel it)

    He can't.

    Allow DNS in his limits.

    is it a feature to be added in the future?
    what about creating another admin account?
    or i suppose, create them a standalone server

    No, as this would allow your reseller to take over the server and become root user on the system. And I guess that#s not what you want him to do.

    Sure, you can do that. But the reseller has full access to all servers, clients of other resellers and other resellers, so creating an admin for him is the same as you sell him your company.

    Sure, you can always do that. as long as you do not connect this server to any other system or your master server and as long as you want potentially give your reseller root access on that standalone server, then you can give him a standalone system.
