Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I don't have a lot of knowledge about this sort of thing, and I've googled for hours, nothing worked.
So on a Ubuntu 11.04 server, I want to restrict a user to a specific directory (so he can't access the parents' directory) for FTP/ssh.
I created the user with
adduser username and changed the target directory with
usermod -d /home/path/to/directory username. This worked perfectly.
From what I found I have to modify a
/etc/ftp/ftpaccess file but the file (and the ftp) directory does not exist. I tried creating it but it didn't change anything. Also I only want to restrict this user and not the others.
