OK I have a user that has 3 domains under his main login. The original domain domain1.com can of course be FTP'd to by using the Direct Admin User that owns the 3 domains.

However if I create an FTP user under domain1.com it shows up in the list of FTP users as user when it should show as user@domain1.com . Meanwhile domain2.com and domain3.com both are functioning properly and I can create the right kind of ftp user.

Strangely enough it appears that FTPing with user to domain1.com actually works sometimes (as if it has created a real Unix user) but it doesn't always work. That is how I was alerted to the problem. The guy will be working on his website and the go to FTP it up and it won't work. Then an hour later it might.

I've got him using the main DA user and then navigating to the proper domain but I'd like him to have what he wants. A seperate FTP user for each domain.

Any ideas?
FreeBSD 4.11 latest DA. FWIW

The problem isn't the FTP login, it's the user rights.

Since DA will create all the domains with the main user ownership, you'll have to modify that ownership by hand.
