MagicDirectory Plugin allows you to "create" a user just by making a directory for them. The key here is to make the directories unique enough that they wouldn't be guessed easily. This allows for easy user creation and management by even the most technically challenged people. Basically, you create a folder in a certain location, and now a user can login with that folders name.
There is a special username in CrushFTP that accepts all usernames and passwords. Basically its a catch all account. The special username is "template". You might be thinking...thats the same as the "anonymous" account. Well, its not. :) The anonymous account accepts all passwords, but only one username.
This plugin modifies the directory access of the "template" user on the fly. The user connects and is allowed to login regardless of username and password. The plugin then verifies if a folder exists for their username, and if it doesn't, it promptly disconnects them. If it does, they are given full rights to that particular folder.
This makes it incredibly easy for you to create and delete accounts.
It also lets you allow someone who isn't technical do it for you.
