vsftpd home directory

Is it possible to change the root directory for anonymous logins?

for instance, my current root directory for anonymous logins is /var/ftp. how can i change it to /var/ftp/pub ?

Thanks for the help

Hi Harpune,
In your vsftpd.conf file, look for the directive anon_root

from the man 5 vsftpd.conf we get:

This option represents a directory which vsftpd
will try to change into after an anonymous login.
Failure is silently ignored.

Default: (none)

I would guess just add a line like this
and you should be good. It should probably go before the other anon lines (anon_world_readable_only, anonymous_enable, etc) but I'm not sure if it makes a difference.
