    I have setup a multiserver setup on Debian Squeeze, ispconfig and jailkit 2.13. It works. But when I add a shell user, his shell is /bin/false, so the user can't login. If I change to /bin/bash, it works. Is it a bug ? Where can I check the shell added by ispconfig in /etc/passwd ?

    /edit : the user is not chrooted, I can browse the / filesystem.
    /edit2 : I have installed jailkit by hand with configure/make/make install, I didn't see that there is a debian way now.

    There is a config problem on your system and not a bug. About which user do you talk, the web user has to be set to /bin/false as he may not login by ssh and there is a second user with the same uid that is set to the jailkit hell. That you can see all directories is vcaused by setting the shell to /bin/bash

    in /etc/passwd

    Please check the ispconfig monitor if there are any jobs listed in the jobqueue and if ther are any errors in the sytem log.

    thanks for your reply.

    #tail -4 /etc/passwd

    the adm* users should have the jk shell /usr/sbin/jk_chrootsh ?

    no job in the queue.

    I just create another user and I have some errors in cron.log. I will check that first.

    /edit : I made a symlink /var/www to /srv/www, it seems symlink is the problem. I will correct the paths and check again
