Default Shell Access, what am I doing wrong?

I want to enable shell access for my users so they can unzip joomla install files (unless someone can tell me a better way).
Anyway, I thought I had done it correctly but when I logged in as a web users I had what appears to be su rights under the shell.

I was able to navigate outside of the home directory for the user.

Surely I am doing something wrong?

I assume you're using a Linux based system. For ssh, the behaviour you see is perfectly normal. The access restrictions a user has are imposed by the rwx fields on your system.

There is no possibility to lock ssh users to their home dir. It you want to lock them, you'd have to use something like ftp, which offers you directory limitations. That's the reason for me (and a lot of other ISP's) to shutdown ssh services for regular users.
