Directory Permissions


1. My Client has a requirement of creating a user vxstoryprovider for which the home directory should be "/data_stage/vxstories" and add him to admin group -- which is very simple and completed.


This is where am stuck:
2. “Permission: - Read/write permission to “/data_stage/vxstories” but no access to any of the folder outside ““/data_stage/vxstories” (NOT even read permission).”

The user has got the read/write access to the directory, not sure how to set the permission of not accessing any folder outside

PLEASE HELP!

You'll need to chroot the user inside it's home directory, search for tutorials on chroot jails based on the method they will be using to access the server - ssh, ftp, console ..etc
