SSH access to only httpdocs folder
Really need to have an user access via ssh to only httpdocs folder not root.
It is necessary for example to grant time-limit access for spesific user.
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
A. Great commented
It is extremely important to add the functionality of providing SSH access to third-party users for a particular folder, like /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/ or /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/dir1
Reason #1: FTP is insecure
Reason #2: FTP nor FTPs is supported by the Cloudflare proxy
Reason #3: For security reasons, third-party developers do not need root access (Plesk's current configuration). Highly productive teams need to delegate tasks to DevOps for specific directories and admins are subjected to data leakage when bypassing Cloudflare to connect via FTP in these highly productive environments.
Reason: #4: Connecting a web app located in a specific directory to a third-party API using SSH via Plesk is unavailable.
Solution #1: Cloudflare enables a solution to proxy FTPs. or
Solution #2: Plesk implements a solution for directory-specific SSH like FTPs.
Non-ideal Solution #1: Advise customers to stop using Cloudflare or configure their DNS to bypass it for FTP. (This exposes their origin IP)
Non-ideal Solution #2: Create multiple subscriptions for customers.
Non-ideal Solution #3: Customers consider migrating their site to the sole use of GCP or AWS by dividing the site into individual projects. Configuring SSH connectivity for individual projects via Cloud platforms is very simple and easy and customers can continue using Cloudflare. This is a growing trend. Hopefully, Plesk can provide a solution to combat this loss of customers.
Despite my extensive research, I may be overlooking a current solution. If so, please provide the resource.
