Smile Proftpd problem


I am using RH9.0 and proftpd. I have created some users
and i want these users must change the root to
/home/"user"/public_html
when they use ftp login they must go to this folder
and can't go to chroot.
How to set it

Not sure what you mean by "they can't go to chroot" but why not just make it so their actual home directory is /home/user/public_html

Then chroot them to that directory so they can't browse to any other directory.

You could also give them a false shell, so they don't have shell access to login in any other means, except for FTP.

Edit /etc/shells, add /bin/false to it and then make their default shell /bin/false.

Add:

DefaultRoot ~/public_html

to your proftpd.conf.
