    I'm quite new to servers and Linux in general, however I know the basics. My problem is I am trying to get FTP to work on a personal server of mine. I've setup and installed vsftpd, but it's not showing the directory I want it to. When I login, I get my whole system directory listing. That's all fine and dandy, but I'd like to remove those priviledges and just limit it to the Apache location. For example, the Apache location is located at:


    I can access it, however I must go up tons of levels to get to the folder. It must be possible to remove that, and just give access right to the html folder.

    Thanks for your help.

    What's the home directory of your FTP user? What's in /etc/vsftpd.conf?
