chrooting


I am running vsftp and apache, default with my distro FC4. What I would like to set up is when user xxx logs in via ftp, the current directory is /var/www/html. I properly set up all the permissions in that directory. The problem is that I don't know how to configure vsftp. I played around with the config file for a while but with no success.

I checked out that link but it didn't really seem to help. The only part that even seemed relevent was in the section called "Step 2" in which they say:

<i>To chroot a local user to their home directory, put their username in this file. One username per line. Please note this only matter is you:

a) are allowing local users to login.
b) have "chroot_local_user=NO" in /etc/vsftpd.conf </i>

I guess this means that I do want to chroot my xxx user to /var/www/html instead of /home/xxx.
