Today i've setup chroot for my debian etch server with ispconfig according: http://www.howtoforge.com/chroot_ssh_sftp_debian_etch It is my first experience with chroot. The setup looks easy, but i don't have the result i expect. I took all the steps as mentioned within the first method at point 2). After that i enabled $go_info["server"]["ssh_chroot"] = 1; within /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php. Logged in into ispconfig as admin and enabled ssh for the site and user. I logged in via Putty (SSH) with the loginname and password. Until now everything looks fine, but i am a little confused: After the login, i did not see hostname:/userdirectory$. But -bash-3.1$ instead. Maybe it's correct, but i did not expect this. I also don't know, how i can verify if the user is jailed within his own homedir. When i type help, i see a lot of commands i am not familiar with. Can anyone tell me if what i describe is normal. I also want to know if it's possible to create crontabs for the user.
