Administrator accounts. Technical details. (ISPmanager)

While creating a new administrator account, a new system user with the same name is created. mgradmin is specified as a user group, which allows to identify administrator when he logs in to the control panel.

If "Superuser" is enabled, the UID will be set to 0, and the command shell will depend on the value in the DefaultShell parameter of the control panel's configuration file.

If "Superuser" is disabled, the UID will be different, and the command shell will be set to /nonexistent that forbids a user to gain the FTP or SSH access.
