Default Jailkit SSH User access to /var/www/ ?

Hi there

I like SSH access and also use SCP to transfer files usually. So it's good to just have one login but I would like to restrict the user just to /var/www/

However I can't seem to get this to work.

In the System Settings -> Server Configuration -> Server -> Jailkit

I did set Jailkit chroot home to '/'

The ssh user has jailkit enabled and under options the folder is set to:


cat /etc/passwd returns this:


and the actual folder user is:

However when I try to login, I get:

Mar 17 10:05:22 manager jk_chrootsh[14187]: abort, path /var/www/clients/client1/web6/./ is not owned by 5008

Checking who owns folder 'web6' I get this:

drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 4.0K Mar 17 09:43 web6

So, is there a way to jail a ssh user to the web folder?
