    Please add the ability for multiple FTP accounts per domain, which can be created directly from inside the Plesk CP. It's been asked by many for a long time now.

    I still don't think it's possible on Linux / unix. Each domain has a specific owner and that owner has FTP access. Only other user would be root, but then files are owned by root not domain owner.

    Maybe the files could be uploaded by a user having global access to the psa group, but only root could then reset the chown correctly. Not to mention heaps of selinux issues as well.

    It's nix, of course it's possible and always has been - just not integrated in to the WebGUI ....yet.

    But creating additional FTP users from the shell is painless, just create new user mimicking the existing UID of the domain owner, home directory and add to psaserv group and presto - additional FTP user for same domain. As the UID and group is the same as the original domain owner - same rights.

    Example:
    # cat /etc/passwd | grep 'original_domain_user'
    original_domain_user:x:10101:1234::/var/www/vhosts/original_domain.com:/usr/local/psa/bin/chrootsh

    UID is 10101 (in this example)

    /usr/sbin useradd -u 10101 -o -d /var/www/vhosts/original_domain.com -g psacln -s /usr/local/psa/bin/chrootsh new_user

    passwd new_user

    Maybe try this..... Works fine! Pay attention to the FAQ if you have problems on adding new accounts. Then you maybe have to compile your own wrapper.c

    multiple FTP accounts should be an URGENT priority!

    You cant expect people with more than one user/developer to all share one FTP account, its ridiculous and a security risk. As we only want some developers to access certain site areas.

    This should have been a feature from the offset like all the others.

    Many colleagues are being put off plesk onto different products because of this one feature missing. Its a severe oversight by parallels.

    To use plesk within a professional manner in many circumstances you need multiple FTP accounts!

    Please can you let us know if you are working on adding this feature?!

    I need to know what system to recommend clients and colleagues, I cant in many cases until this feature is there.
