    I'm using vsftpd as my FTP server, and I'd like to chroot my FTP users to their home dir. How can I do it?

    Put

    Code:
    passwd_chroot_enable=YES
    in

    Code:
    /etc/vsftpd.conf
    and restart vsftpd. That chroots each user to the directory specified in /etc/passwd. If you want to chroot a user to another directory than his home directory, simply put a dot (.) in the path to his home directory in /etc/passwd:

    admin:x:1000:1000:admin:/home/./admin:/bin/bash

    would chroot the user admin to /home instead of /home/admin.
