How can I limit my ftp user to just one directory


Hi,

Im using WU-ftp,
I have created a ftp user. Login works great and I am in the correct directory. The only problem is my user can just cd whereever he wants to. I know this has something to do with chroot(). I dont understand how to use it. Can somebody post me a example?

Thanks,

Mike.

There are plenty of sites out there that explain how to do this.

Did you feed your searchengine any keywords??
