    ISPConfig is great and all, when you're using it for yourself only, you don't need to worry about much.

    However, let's say I want to host customers sites, and most importantly, programs that require shell access...

    I've noticed that all my web* accounts can ready almost ANY file on the server. This is not safe. I'd like to have all shell accounts limited to their $HOME...

    I run Ubuntu if this matters any, but is there any way to restrict that to where only root has access to those files in / but users can't access anything outside of, say, /var/www/web1 web2, etc.

    Also a tip... listen to Till word for word. I made a fool of myself by not doing it :p (Thanks Till, I appreciate the help and attention you give everyone).
