Limit new ftp users to access only their home public_html folder


I made this topic because i’ve read all topics so this is my last chance… to find a solution.

What i got from older posts is that there’s an option that resides in this place “Limits and Validation -> FTP Directory Restrictions”

BUT I DON"T FIND THIS LOCATION. can anyone give me a light here???


There should indeed be a “Limits and Validation” section on the left. It’s below “Addresses and Networking”, and above “Add Servers”.

It would only show up if you’re using the Master Admin user (normally, “root”), and using the default theme, the Virtualmin Framed theme.

Let us know if that helps!


I don’t know what i’m doing wrong, i installed the WEBMIN theme stressfree beucase i find it very good looking, but now i can’t change the these. it seems stuck or somethig because it won’t change to other than stressfree.

How do i change de virtualmin theme ? is there something that i’m missing? i’m going to WEBMIN > SERVERS > VirtualMin Virtual Servers GPL…

i uploaded a screenshot of my virtualmin if it helps.


Well, I’m not familiar with the Stressfree theme, so I can’t tell you how to change the Virtualmin theme using it.

Normally in Virtualmin, you would set the theme by going into Webmin -> Webmin -> Change Language and Theme, and in there you can set the Virtualmin Framed Theme.

You could also accomplish the same thing in Webmin -> Webmin -> Webmin Configuration -> Webmin Theme.

Hopefully there’s something similar for doing that in Stressfree.


you can find “Limits and Validation” in menu virtualmin virtual server (GPL), in middle of page beside Check Disk Quotas

Way to revive a two year old topic. :wink:
