    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
    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?

    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, i have no idea who this is but they weren't able to get in.

    Thanks for the help and the great tutorial.
