    Requesting some Linux Tutoring re setting up FTP

    Hi There,

    I am totally new to using Linux. I have a Linux Redhat 7.2 server in san jose with PuTTY access using SSH, as root. After that I'm on my own.

    I have one domain name set up ( which has FTP access, but I need to set up a user and grant them ONLY access to a folder two levels below the web root folder.

    Would anyone be willing to explain how to do this? I'm very good in SQL and PHP but Linux is new to me.

    Well, basically you just have to change the home directory of the user "ftp". You can find the home directory settings in /etc/passwd. anonymous access is automatically chrooted (sorry, I'm drunk, so, no, I don't care to explain) to the home directory you specify, so they can't get out of there.
