Linux VPS - Need same FTP username across different sites

Hi all...

I'm hoping someone may be able to help. As you can imagine, I've been pulling my hair out with this one.

I have a VPS with 4 sites hosted using Ubuntu and Plesk.

I have a directory for one of the sites: with the username "user1"

I then wish to create a user with the same username "user1" on a different site:

They have been setup as 2 separate sites via Plesk (all 4 have in fact).

Unfortunately, I have some hard-coded software that has the username/password fixed (go figure?) and cannot be changed.

I'm afraid my knowledge of setting up modules is fairly limited.

Thank you in advance.

There is a forum especially for plex, your post there could net you a better answer as I believe it involves web-tv (I could be wrong) any way here is the link

Hi -

It sounds like you can probably do everything you want directly from the Ubuntu command line:

1. Run "adduser" from the command line:

2. Follow these steps to install and configure your FTP servers:

Thank you for the answers - I really appreciate it.

I'm struggling to see how I can add the same user to two different sites? Any ideas?
