vsftpd chrooted area?


Can someone please give me a hand with vsftp? I have a server setup running vsftp.

Unless I'm completely missing it in the man page I can't seem to find any way to get it to do what I want.

When any of the users log in I want them to start in my /ftp folder.

The only way I can figure out how to do this is by making each users home directory the /ftp folder.

Is there anything I can put into the conf file to specify the chroot area for every user?

Thanks very much.
