I'd like to chroot my FTP users to their home directory so that they are not able to browse the whole server. How can I do it? I'm using proftpd.

Thanks,
Olli

Add the line

DefaultRoot ~

to /etc/proftpd.conf and restart proftpd:

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

Wow, just a single line.
I wonder why this isn't on by default... :( I think most admins want to chroot their FTP users...

Yes, that would make sense.
