    In run a linux box with Plesk 7.5. In Plesk I have allowed shell access for some users. This works, to some extent.

    If I login as root via SSH, I can su to a user that was granted shell access via Plesk

    However, I can not login directly to the server as any other user than root.

    Thus, there is effectively no way for my users to login to the server.

    The 'box' is a 'brand new' VPS. First, I find it odd that root access via SSH is default. Second, I don't know whether the problem with user access via SSH is a Plesk related problem or related to SSH. The fact that the users can su suggests that its an SSH related problem. I checked the sshd_config file for the AllowUsers directory. It isn't even there. Is there anywhere else I could fix this manually?

    Also, why doesn't Plesk do what its supposed to do? (i.e. grant shell users access via SSH).
