Set one key for all the new accounts, but not a root key
« on: September 08, 2017, 03:58:40 PM »
HI all.

Great service.  We are moving away from cpanel possibly for CWP and really like the features. 

One thing we really need to accomplish is a way to give our developers a way to log in via sftp to individual accounts but not use the root account.  Is there a way to create a single key we can hand out, they can put it in their sftp clients and they can login and see all the accounts but not go up one directory to the server directories?

thanks in advance

maybe the best option for you would be to use Virtual FTP accounts, you can create them from the FTP Manager.

I suppose, but the entire point is to make it easy for the developers to login with one key.  Also, even though it's a virtual ftp, its still ftp and as such insecure correct?

you can use ftps, ftpes as secure version of ftp but in case that you want to use ftp and jail all then think about using cloudlinux or setting up chroot-ed sftp

Maybe other option would be that you could use CWP Secure Linux it also has restrictions per program so you could maybe work with it...but for this you would need to contact cwp supprot
