    I followed the tutorial "Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On CentOS 5.3"

    and got everything setup, i have a user called adhocrac on my system (with usr:grp ids being 501:501). I set it up on mysql:

    User: adhocrac
    status: 1
    Uid: 501
    Gid: 501 /home/adhocrac
    UL: 0
    DL: 0
    comment:
    ipaccess: *
    QuotaSize: 0
    QuotaFiles: 0

    now when I connect to it with an ftp client, it connects successfully but does not show the contents on /home/adhorac

    To test it further: i changed ChrootEveryone in the pure-ftpd config file to no and then reconnected. This time it showed all the files in the directory.

    The problem is that I don't want the user to be able to no higher than /home/adhocrac.

    I want him to be able to go to /home/adhocrac/public_html but not /home

    What am I doing wrong here?

    Any errors in your logs? Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    getenforce
    ?

    Thanks for the reply falko, the result of getenforce was Disabled

    But i tried it this morning and it was working. I don't know why it just started but the logs did not show anything about why. It did show however that someone was trying to log into my ftp server from 211.103.110.59, i have no idea who this is but they weren't able to get in.

    Thanks for the help and the great tutorial.
