My understanding of how dreamhost handles ftp is that each domain has one single user that can access a particular domain via ftp. Is this correct? I work at an organization where multiple users do web page updates. I hate to give them access to my account since they have no need for anything resembling admin access.
I believe you can use Directory remaping to accomplish this - allowing multiple users access to your one domain. Multiple poeple probably shouldn’t be editing the same file at the same time with this system though.
