sftp chroot directory
 
I have a ftpuser, and am trying to limit them to the /var/www directory. When I sftp, it is not able to connect. But if I have the directory set to /home, then it is able to connect. This is the code that I'm using to chroot:

Code:

Match User ftpuser
    ChrootDirectory /var/www
    AllowTCPForwarding no
    X11Forwarding no
    ForceCommand internal-sftp

In filezilla, I get the error about a network error, and that software caused the connection abort.

What are the permissions on /var/www?

The permissions should be 755 or ssh will complain. Also check sshd logs for any other clues.

Check that ssh is open on your firewall too.
