Can't create additional FTP accounts

    I want to create several FTP accounts for one of my domains. The accounts would be locked into a single directory. I have tried all the help on the boards from here but it appears to be for older versions.

    I am using Plesk 8.0.1 on Debian Sarge.

    Can someone please explain how I would be able to do this, or at least lock the administrator account into one directory within httpdocs.

    Finally, if anyone knows what SWSofts thinking was behind only allowing 2 FTP accounts, I would very much like to hear it becuase it makes no sense to me.

    I saved the following information from a previous thread. I have not used it myself but I'm told that it works:

    I tried that but the users get a 550 error and can't login.

    I'm not sure if this is a Debian specific issue.

    I got it to work on Debian. Not sure what I did different, although the first time I accidentally used the userid of one of the web users, rather than the main account.
