Subject: User Access restriction.
I have a server Up and running, 4.8-R, (well why 4.8? its up
However, this server is for commercial use, recently, we started
Home pages hosting,
which requier me to give the user access to the shell,
Well, the question,
Lets say, I have 2 groups, Group1, Group2
under Groupe1 is the webpages shell accounts (user accounts)
and group2, just shell users,
If user1 from Group1 will ftp or ssh to the box, his default home
path will be
But, he still can navigate thro his FTP or ssh to see the
directories and read files of group1 or
group2, and play around lilbit,
PLEASE how to restrict this user from going outside his shell
account and restrict him from
viewing others folders and webpages ? If i will chmod to something
limited, then even when
he browse the web to his webpage it wont work,
So how to have the restriction in the same time viewing his web
thro any browser worldwide?
Sorry for the long email.
or have a look at "man ftpchroot"
