Jail user to run process


Hi all,

I have created a user 'jailuser' in a chroot jail environment. The home of the user is now /home/webjailuser/home/jailuser.

I am using this user so that the user can only change html files of web document root as I mounted that directory under his home.

Now, I want to grant that user the privilege to star/stop apache server only. Is it possible with jailkit? The reason behind this I have a system with tomcat where I grant privilege to the user to start/stop tomcat service so it the above is possible then I will put the user in jail and just give him tomcats docroot and tomcat process privilege. Nothing else.

Thanks

Though its against the methodology of jailkit but still there should by a way to achieve this.

Thanks.
