vsftpd configure separate (non home) folder for users
I would like to configure vsftpd so that:
The user: webadmin can read and write to /www and all files and folders in it
The user: backup can read and write /backup and all files and folders in it
I know how to send each user to their home directory and lock them there, but not to a custom folder and prevent access to anywhere else.
Thank you very much!

i would have to check, but I believe you could do this...
when you adduser, you can specify the home directory, it is a liux command line. I do not know about control panel options.
vsftpd has a config that chroots(sort of) users into their home directories.
in vsftp conf file
local_enable=YES (allows local users to log in)
chroot_local_user=YES (pretty much does it)
two of these commands you probably already have there.
The other, the chroot command, is special.
I have not tried it out side of the home directories as that is my users directories...however, I would assume that it is keyed to the user's home directory that the user actually goes to, not /home/user....
Should work fine.
Now if using acontrol panel....well.....better check on that site first as they are a bit screwey
