Generally speaking, Plesk supports two types of FTP accounts: default and additional. The ftp-user operator affects only additional FTP accounts, accounts of the 'default' type are managed with the webspace and webuser operators.
Default FTP accounts are the following:
Additional FTP accounts are FTP accounts that can be created and used in addition to default ones. They bring flexibility to managing FTP access to sites, allowing users - other than site, subdomain and web user - to access particular site directory with particular rights.
Administrators can manage FTP accounts on all sites. Plesk resellers and customers can manage FTP accounts on all sites created for their account on conditions that they are granted the FTP subaccount management permission.
