I've set up a ftp server for using ftp push on a tv recording page. I've created an extra user for this, who has only access to one directory, which the user is chroot-ed in. But the page does not allow FTP-Pushing to the ftp root directory. But I want the files to go in the FTP user's
home/chroot directory. I thought of a symlink. So,
/storage/ftppush/ is the real path of the user's chroot home. I tried to create a symlink there to the same directory:
admin@sbusersrv:/storage/ftppush$ ln -s ROOT /storage/ftppush/
But when I try to put some file there using ftp, I get:
ftp> put test /ROOT/test 200 PORT command successful 550 /ROOT/test: Too many levels of symbolic links
How can I make such a working symbolic link for FTP?
