Chrooted SSH & ISPConfig

Does ISPConfig need pre-existing Chrooted SSH?
Does it create one?

You must compile a new OpenSSH, as shown in chapter 2.1 on

The rest is done by ISPConfig.

ok. thx.
Has anyone tried this with the new Ubuntu 8.04 LTS?

Not yet, but I don't see any problem. :)

After trying to configure the script stops at PAM headers check and saiz...

configure: error: PAM headers not found
What could cause this?
Do I need to recreate the SSH certs?

My bad. Missing libs.
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS has libssl0.9.8 not .7 as in the howto.
Just replace the version and it should work.

Ok. Installed SSH chroot without errors but it does not seem to work in my ISPConfig installation.
Should I have created the chroot environment under /home/chroot?
Or maybe /var/www?
I notice there is no /var/www/web1/etc dir.
Without etc dir there cant be passwd file with /./web1 user.
How do I get ISPConfig to include those when new user is created?

Did you set $go_info["server"]["ssh_chroot"] to 1 in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/
