Chrooting ssh/sftp users.


I wanted to chroot my ssh/sftp users into a directory. Eg. /var/www/html/bobsite/ . And I still need it to be able to be served by apache. I've always previously used vsftpd and chrooting users was an easy task. I've been browsing howtos and forum to figure out the easiest way to do this but every way seems kinda complicated.

Whats the easy most simple way of doing this. I basically have two to four users, which have to log in sftp to update their sites. I would like them to be chrooted into their webdir. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Look for Chrootssh (the OpenSSH chroot patch), Rssh or Scponly. Isn't that hard.
