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 domain 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 domains, allowing users - other than domain, subdomain and web user - to access particular domain directory with particular rights.
Plesk Administrators can manage FTP accounts on all domains. Plesk Clients can manage FTP accounts on all domains created for their account on conditions that they are granted the FTP subaccount management permission.
