how to create ftp users on a virtual server that are locked into a subdirectory

I am trying to setup FTP users on a website but I want them to be jailed into a subfolder within the website. how do I do that?

It’s mainly for a client who wants to provide FTP access to his own customers, but not have them see each other’s stuff. And, additionally, I don’t want any of them to see any of the the website files.

Do I need to go manual into ProFTP

– I am using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and VirtualMin Pro. 3.78

Thanks for any help


… because currently if I add FTP users to a virtual server, that user has access to the same stuff as everyone else. Which isn’t what I want to accomplish

It sounds like you may want to restrict FTP users to their home directories… you can do that in Limits and Validation -> FTP Directory Restrictions.
