Default Create general FTP account

Hello everyone!
I have ISPmanager Lite 5.31.1
So, I need to create general FTP account for all hosts (/var/www/). Via panel or Shell
I have accumulated a lot of account and It becomes difficultly.

Hello,

ISPmanager allows to create FTP account only for users. I mean each FTP account has uid as a user. Each FTP account has access permissions as a user has.
So, to be able to manage all files in /var/www it needs to be root. But root can't login via ftp but via sftp can. May be it is better to use sftp and login as root.

It is impossible technically. Use sftp or single user account for all www domains.

New account is not required. You may connect as root.

Please read about sftp here

If you want to create another user with root access - duplicate root line in /etc/passwd like this:
root:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash
newroot:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash

After then - create password for him:
passwd newroot

And use newroot sftp

Or you could choose another way to add administrative user manually
