    Hi All,

    If possible help me , We have a around 50 clients hosted in a Linux server with CPanel. We have created 50 username and given to the clients. They keep updating the site. Now then we get atleast 10 corrections / modification in the website from the clients. We do the chagnes and update the client website using their username password.

    Is there a way where , I can have single ftp account through which I can update all my clients with single susername and password? This facility should also not affect individual website users?

    Any suggestion ?

    Thanks in Advance

    Go on, have a guess
    Not really, no, since files uploaded are created by the username and group of the active login. You might be able to do it using SFTP and your root account, but you would still need to check file ownerships afterwards and check. What you're trying to do is to break a security model put in place for good reason, i.e. not being able to modify one accounts files from another.
