As with other website management platforms, Vesta allows user accounts to have their features and limitations defined as a package. When creating a new user in Vesta, you must choose the package that applies to their account. These packages are defined in the Packages area of the Admin login on Vesta.
Step 1: Log into Vesta at YourServerIP:8083 on your server.
Step 2: Navigate to the Packages section in the top navigation bar.
Step 3: Observe the packages included by default.
Step 4: If you wish to edit a package definition, move your mouse pointer over it and then click the Edit in the top right.
The default package can be edited as shown.
The Web, Proxy, and DNS templates are defined in configuration files on the server and modified with command-line tools (see below). The standard for user accounts is not to allow SSH/shell access, but that can be enabled. The rest of the template dictates how many Web Domains, Web Aliases, DNS Domains, DNS Records, Mail Domains, Mail Accounts, Databases, and Cron jobs (all default to 100) along with Backups (3), Bandwidth (100GB), and the default nameservers.
These are predefined templates for Apache configuration, mostly adjusting how PHP is handled.
Predefined templates for if or how Nginx serves cached copies of httpd/php generated pages
Templates that control the default DNS settings for a domain.
The templates referenced here can be found in /user/local/vesta/data/templates/ under web/httpd for apache, web/nginx for nginx, and dns/ for bind.
