This is either a bug in VirtualMin or some peculiar configuration issue with CentOS 6.2. In any event. on any virtual server, I am unable to create a user who has
Email, FTP, and SSH
Email and FTP
And to spice things up: when I added the user to the server and set the directory for him to "automatic"
VirtualMin moved the entire content of public_html folder into
/home/devdomain/homes/newuser/[all public_html content here! Yikes, site off line!]
VirtualMin in effect did this (my guess)
mkdir /home/devdomain/homes/newuser mv /home/devdomain/public_html/* home/devdomain/homes/newuser/* rm public_html
I suddenly got calls from my team "our staging server/site just disappeared!" hehe.. fortunately it is a staging/devserver and I retraced all my actions history in root showed no mv or rm activity so i looked into /devdomain/ found the content, moved it back out and rename "newuser" to "public_html" and the site was up again whew! VirtualMin New Unix User playing tricks on us.
So, there is some serious bug there..
and back to the main point: no option to grant "new user" any ftp-over-ssh privileges. It matters not whether I chose "FTP user" (link toward the right) or the New Unix User (link toward the left in the GUI)
please see this thread on the forums where someone in Vancouver was trying to help me.
