VSFTP user_config_dir Directive Question

Okay, I'm trying to setup a user with full rights to a html directory and its sub directories.

Let's assume the user name is bob and the only directory he needs access to is /home/kudos/html and sub directories. As I understand it, the directive "user_config_dir" can accomplish this, however I can't find a clear explanation on how to use it.

Any one know?

well, I've answered my own question.

I used "user_config_dir" and created a file named bob with the home directory I wanted him to have. I then used "chroot_local_user=YES" and the "chroot_list_file=/myselecteddirectory/vsftpd.chroot_list" and placed bob in the file. Now the only place the user can roam is his own specific local root.
