Users and Groups
On the MicroRack system each web site is created as a unique UNIX group.
All users (mail, ftp, shell) of one site are assigned to one group.
There are four types of users in the Microrack FreeBSD operating system.
The first is the "root" or "super-user".
Root is the system administrator and has nearly unrestricted rights
to the system and everything on it. Only operations that may affect the system stability
or other servers on the network may be restricted.
When you need to use root access, you should use your regular login,
and then use su to enter root-level access.
As soon as you are done with your operations, you should immediately
type exit to leave root mode. This will prevent you from doing damage to your system.
- Server Administrator
The Server Administrator, has full access to the entire
configuration of the MicroRack system and all websites via the web control panel.
The Server Administrator can create and manage additional users and control
various system settings.
- Site Administrator

He usually has FTP access to this area, and will have its own
POP3-Email-Account. He is allowed to create additional FTP and mail users, depending on the
Site Manager settings for the website.
- Additional Users

Such users do not have access to a web control panel.
