Question about hidden files.


Im running Fedora Core 1 and my question is that when i logon thru the ftp
with WS_FTP i can see all the hidden files on the users directory instead of only the public_html and cgi-bin folder..why?

what ftp server are you using?
propably its a configuration failure or you log in with your real username and therefore get to your home/username dir

That is because your ftp client is configured to show you the hidden files.

Easy my friend, this is an proftpd.conf example:


##################begin############
ServerName "My server"
ServerType standalone
DeferWelcome off
ServerIdent off
MultilineRFC2228 on
DefaultServer on
ShowSymlinks on
AllowOverwrite on
DefaultRoot ~/
TimeoutNoTransfer 600
TimeoutStalled 600
TimeoutIdle 1200
DisplayLogin ftp.msg
DisplayFirstChdir .message
DenyFilter \*.*/
AccessDenyMsg "Tu username y password han sido incorrecto."
# Uncomment this if you are using NIS or LDAP to retrieve passwords:
#PersistentPasswd off
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port 21
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
MaxInstances 50
# Set the user and group that the server normally runs at
User root
Group root
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /*>
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new files and dirs
# (second parm) from being group and world writable.
Umask 022 022
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>

########################end ###############

The line:

DefaultRoot ~/

It make the users go only to their home dirs.

Best Regards.

I did this to jail the users on the /home/user/public_html
instead of /home/user


# Use this to excude users from the chroot

DefaultRoot ~ !adm <---i change this to

DefaultRoot ~/public_html !adm


Is this the correct way of doing this ?

FYI: Im running proftpd 1.2.9-4
