How to reconfigure Jail Kit from scratch?
After upgrading from Debian 9 to Debian 10, it’s not possible to log in as a user in the Jail (su user). Updating the jail with jk_update -j jail doesn’t help.
My question is:
How to properly configure Jail Kit after a dist-upgrade on Debian 10?
Is it possible to simply delete /home/chroot and rebuild it from scratch?


Virtualmin 7.9.0 has a new feature to reset the jail. You don’t need to do anything manually, e.g.:

This is in Virtualmin PRO. I own GPL and… many users.

I am wondering if it is possible to do the following:
virtualmin modify-domain --all-domains --disable-jail
rm -rf /chroot
virtualmin modify-domain --all-domains --enable-jail


Yes, disabling jail for the domain and deleting chroot directory should work too.
