Plesk 8.6 currently does not allow creating more than one FTP account per domain. You can setup 'web users' via the plesk interface but this sandboxes the FTP accounts outside of the web accessible folder (httpdocs). I need to allow multiple FTP users access to the httpdocs folder.

How can I setup multiple FTP accounts per domain via shell that can access httpdocs?

This isn't possible through Plesk as you may have guessed, however you can just add normal UNIX accounts on the command using useradd, passwd etc. This article also suggests matching the UID with the -u option of useradd.

Thanks for this, worked like a champ. Now I need to busy myself making a shell script to automate the process. – Darren Newton Jun 6 '09 at 15:56
