    ftp directory permissions


    I have a question on setting permissions or what i think should be setting permissions. I am trying to make it so when a user logs onto the ftp site he/she will not be able to change directories. For example, i do not want them to be able to go up a directory or create a new directory.


    Current directory:

    /home/user/public_html

    I do not want the user to be able to go to:

    /home/user (or anywhere below this)

    and i do not want them to be able to do something like this:

    /home/user/public_html/mystuff

    Can someone please help. I just want it so they have to stay in the one SET directory.

    Thanks in advance

    Lock the users in a folder. You can do it with the config file.
