    I was just reading a thread on the an unknown fitler was not added (php) problem where I was told to change a setting inside

    while having a look at this file I noticed severall other settings I did not find any documentation about.

    as an example:

    ssh_chroot - what does this do? I already followed the how to chroot users from but as far as I remember this was enabled, at least it works, all my users arec chrooted... or could it be that it was overwritten by an update?
    talking about sudo_du_enabled - I remember very clearly enabling this to when I had some problems with the calculation of the website statistics shown in ispcfg.... but now its disabled and still I have those statistics working...

    could we do a post explaining all these settigns or maybe add this info to a faq?

    This eetting may be overridden by updates. If you installed a chroot capable SSHD, activate it again.

    The seeting is disabled on updates, you must activate it again.

    concerning the ssh_chroot:

    I am a little bit confused, I followed this how-to but it does not say anything about enabling this setting inside or am I wrong now? how do these two things play together?

    The howto is not about ISPConfig so you wont find ISPConfig mentioned in the howto, but the sshd configured in the howto is compatible with the chroot ssh functionality in ISPConfig.

    so you mean if I follow the howto and then enable this setting inside ispcfg when I create new users from ispcfg I will get chrooted users?
