The User Manager allows you to manage the user database of your server.
User names constist of 4-16 small characters or numbers. Password consist of
6-12 characters or numbers. Each user will be assigned to a group of users.
In addition to the Server Administration (wheel) group, there is one group for
each installed web site.
The Access section controls the set of persissions for each user.
You can select if a user should have "E-Mail only", "E-Mail and FTP" or
"E-Mail, FTP and Shell/Telnet" access to the server.
The home directories of the MicroRack users are located in /usr/home/ and have the
name of the domain e.g. /usr/home/domain.com.
Users have a "soft" and a "hard" disk usage quota.
When the "soft" quota is reached, the system will warn the account holder once.
The system will not allow the users of a site to go beyond the "hard" quota, e.g.
during an ftp file transfer, if the file transfer exceeds the "hard" quota,
the transfer will fail.
Users will be allowed to exceed the soft quota for a "grace period" of up to seven days.
If the user is still above the soft quota at the end of this grace period,
the user will be unable to write any new data to the account.
If you don't want to set any quota limits for an user enter 0 for both soft
and hard disc Quota.
The User Manager is also available in the control panels of the virtual sub-hosting accounts,
however, names such as
support@, sales@, info@, office@, root@, mail@, admin@, postmaster@, hostmaster@,
and webmaster@ are reserved for the use of the main server administrator and cannot be
created by the virtual sub-hosting account users.
Virtual sub-hosting users can use the
alias system to assign names like this to
existing user (POP3) accounts.
