Granting SSH access to a Ruby on Rails user


I installed Rails and Rubygems on a web server for a customer who wants to install a Ruby on Rails application that he developped.

He needs SSH access to interact with Ruby, so I'll have to grant him access, but I want him to only play around in his /home directory, as this server also hosts other customers. How could I do that?

Thanks,

Unless your server's permissions are already messed up, he will be kept out of other peoples directories anyway, just using basic unix file permissions.

If you don't want him to leave his home directory at all, you will need to look into a chroot.
