Exclamation Proftpd chroot ipsconfi3 question

Have ISPCONFIG3 installed and what i want to do is have a domain called MYDOMAIN.COM and i have 3 ftp accounts. I do not want each person to see the others files so the ftp users need to be locked to a user directory inside the domain. I am unable to find a way to do that with ispconfig. Any help would be great. I have the 3 users but they all go to the same directory? Thank you

ISPConfig uses pure-ftpd and not proftpd. If you install ISPConfig as described in the perfects etup guide (with pure-ftpd), then users are locked into their website directory by default.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

I tried creating a web with like bruce@mydomain.com and then made an ftp user for that web and it did lock them to that directory. Thankyou for leading me in the right direction. that got the results i needed.
