    I'm wondering how I give access to a jailkit user to it's parent user (ispconfig client) 's website webroot.

    I have a ispconfig client:

    'pam' has a jailkit ssh user:

    pampam's home directory:

    'pam' has a website:'s webroot is:

    I'm wondering how do I give 'pampam' access to the webroot.

    Maybe a better question is,
    how do I move the webroot to within the jailkit user's jail?

    I can't even move the webroot in order to make a symlink in its place:
    [email protected]:/var/www/clients/client3/web3# mv web web_old
    mv: cannot move `web' to `web_old': Permission denied

    Thats the case already. The jailed user has access to the web directory. If you login with this jailed user, just do a:

    cd ../../web to go to the web directory.

    [email protected]:~$ pwd
    [email protected]:~$ cd ../../web
    [email protected]:/web$ ls
    ls: cannot open directory .: Permission denied
    [email protected]:/web$
