"Mount" a folder into my ftp folder ?


My ftp server uses a folder called ftp-docs for all ftp logins. But I need to "mount" another folder called files into this ftp-docs folder.
If everything works, a user can login to the ftp and is placed in the ftp-docs folder. Then there's a folder called files, if he opens this folder he's directed to the "real" files folder.

how can I do this? Can you even mount folders or does it work with symbolic links?

thanks in advance!

You can use a link, like this:

cd /path/to/ftp-docs
ln -s /path/to/realfiles/folder

hm,

it creates a link but as a ftp user you can't change to this directory.

Then you'll have to give the appropriate permissions (Owner / Group / rwx) permissions to the files folder.
