vsftpd.conf/chroot/vsftpd.chroot_list issue


I have set up my vsftp to only allow a certain list of users to access directories higher than their home. This works fine, but I would like to set it so although they have access to / they still start in /home/username once they log into ftp. Is there a way to do this? I've searched and haven't found an answer.

Thanks.

check the man page online

http://vsftpd.beasts.org/vsftpd_conf.html

it mentions a tag called

local_root

perhaps you can set it to a system variable like $HOME? I haven't tried it myself.
