Additional FTP accounts added in Plesk > Domains > example.com > FTP Access becomes the owner of the site’s vhost:
# ls -ld /var/www/vhosts/plesktest.com/
drwx-x–. 5 ftpaccount psaserv 52 Oct 9 18:51 /var/www/vhosts/plesktest.com/
- The PHP running under an additional FTP user instead of the subscription’s system user.
Such behaivior related to the fact that recently, a system user of a subscription was renamed in Domains > example.com > Web Hosting Access. It is expected behavior.
System user of a subscription and additional FTP user are created with the same UID. It can be seen with the following command while connected to the server via SSH:
# grep ‘FTPuser|SYSuser’ /etc/passwd
A username is requested by its UID. In case there are several usernames with the same UID, displayed username is the one which is placed higher in the file
/etc/passwd. It can be checked with the command below:
# getent passwd 10013
Please note that in centos8 this behavior was changed and OS shows the last added user:
Such behavior registered as the bug https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016932800
To display the system user of the subscription as the owner of the subscription’s files, rename the additional FTP user in Domains > example.com > FTP Access.
This will rewrite the file
/etc/passwd and put the additional FTP user at the bottom of the file. After that, the name of the FTP user can be changed back.
