help with vsftpd


Hi, i have a ftp server with vsftpd, server is based on Debian and it have two users, root and userftp, i want that root can log in to "/" but userftp only can log in to "/home/userftp", i want cage userftp in your home directory, but i dont get that userftp cant log in in "/".

My /etc/vsftpd is:

#
# You may restrict local users to their home directories. See the FAQ for
# the possible risks in this before using chroot_local_user or
# chroot_list_enable below.
chroot_local_user=YES
#
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
# (Warning! chroot'ing can be very dangerous. If using chroot, make sure that
# the user does not have write access to the top level directory within the
# chroot)
chroot_local_user=YES
chroot_list_enable=YES
# (default follows)
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list
#

And my /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list is:

root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash

Thanks.

why are you using passwd entries in that file? it's literally meant to be just a list of usernames.
