Linking to ftp user home directory with proftp
I use proftpd, i don't use ispconfig, i have only few users. system is debian 4.0, proftpd is 1.2.10. i think proftpd is not chrooted.
i'm looking for idea about good way to link other directories from file system (e.g. /var/www/pythonframework to users directory) to user who logs in via ftp.
I tried to use "mount --bind" command (e.g. mount --bind /var/www/pythonframework /home/user/pythonframework) and then i changed permission for directory but when i log in using ftp client (filezilla) i'm not able to access pythonframework directory (filezilla gives error).
Otherwise i can navigate from command line to that directory and e.g. change name of the file.
I'm looking for something flexible so i can link or dis-link some directories often or when necessary.
thanks for any idea.
Have you tried to use symlinks. Command syntax:
ln -s /var/www/pythonframework /home/user/pythonframework
I tried this and also changing permission to particular user but filezilla gives (although folder is there with little arrow):
550 images: No such file or directory
Error: Could not retrieve directory listing
I read that proftp has directives similar to apache directives like "<directory>" or "User" so i'll look at it and i'll let you once i test it.
mount --bind works!
so i had to do something wrong when i did mount cmd.
but now i can see that directory and upload or download.
correct way was:
/home/user: mkdir images
/home/user: mount --bind /var/www/images images
/home/user: chown -R user:user images
