Smile Centos 4.3 FTP Control pannel


Dear list,
We are running a shared server(Centos 4.3+HTTP). Providing FTP(VSFTP) access to the clients by making there home directory in /var/html/www/client. So they can upload there files directly. We are creating, changing the FTP username and password manualy. Is there any software to provide a control panel to the client having options to change the FTP username and password???? Thanks in advance....

do you use vsftp virtual users or are they just system users?

if they are system users then when you add a new user he will be able to do ftp and changing the password of his login will change the ftp password as well.

Sir,
They are system users. They are working very fine in normal mode. But i need to do the work in webmin. Because if we provide the control pannel to the client with the url http:myservername:10000/, we must provide a user name and password. This can be done by creating a user in webmin with limited permissions('vsftpd' and 'user and group control'). But if i do like this, the user may even disable or delete the user 'root' via webmin.
So we have to provide the control panel with proper restrictions. Kindly help me with the webmin.

seems like you are looking for a full control panel like ispconfig. check this tutorial(and others under"Control Panels").

I haven't used them in a production environment. Hope some control panel guru will come for help.
