ISPConfig has this function already.

How do I implement it then? -- because users I create can browse the entire directory tree.

1) Install a SSH daemon that is patched for chrooting by following step 2.1 and just this one step from the following tutorial:

2) Enable chrooting in the ispconfig file. All new or updated users are now chrooted.

Looking good for me.

I had to install libpam0g-dev on ubuntu.


apt-get install libpam0g-dev
then restarted ssh service:


/etc/init.d/ssh restart


For me know all my users can use SFTP.
They were already using FTPES and FTP.

Do not edit the password file, ISPConfig will remove your changes. You must enable chrooting in ispconfig as I pointed out above.

Is this chroot safe from jailbreaking?
There are a couple known approaches to this. Some exploits using procmail for example in one of the chroot guides described which allows someone to break the chroot.
