Question

Multiple domains and multiple SFTP or FTP accounts

  • Posted March 26, 2014

I have managed to set up 2 domains on my account and have them both up and running, however how do I set SFTP or FTP access to those folders using user1@domain1.co.uk and user2@domain2.co.uk ?

I believe the way to do it would be to create 2 users on the remote system, set their home directories as the two respective folders and change the ownership on the contents of the folders to the correct user. <br> <br>Something like: <br> <br>1) useradd user1 -d /path/to/dir1 <br>2) useradd user2 -d /path/to/dir2 <br>3) passwd user1 <br>4) passwd user2 <br>5) chown -R user1 /path/to/dir1 <br>6) chown -R user2 /path/to/dir2 <br> <br>and then you can use sftp user1@host etc :)
