Post vsftpd home directory and chroot


Alright, I have seen just about every thread on this subject and I hope someone can answer my question.

I want to have a user log into my ftp server (vsftpd) and go to a specific directory. OTHER THAN THEIR HOME DIRECTORY, i.e. /ftp. where as their home directory is /home/user.

Any ideas?

Also I want to add another directory for them to access. i.e. /ftp2

Any ideas?

I don't know if I can do this, and any help is greatly appreciated.

Good timing. I am having the exact same problem at the moment. I am probably even more confused than you are.

Hey -- you wouldn't mind sending me a copy of your configuration file, would you? I accidently ruined mine without backing up. I have the RedHat 8 as well.

Well, the second post fixed my problem (that I have spent 3 hours on ARG!)

I actually had to download the vsftpd.conf file from ftp://vsftpd.beasts.org/users/cevans....3/vsftpd.conf , and carefully modify it until I got it working. I have no idea what line made it work, all I know is that it works (yay).

This is one of the main reasons that Mac OS X is still the best. Just check a box and you are done
