I have vsftp chrooted so that users can only come into their home directory.
I have a few virtual hosts.
I have the websites in the home directory of the intial user for each site.
So the sites look like this.
Using vsftp, I have set the default to chroot a user to their home
directory. So user1 ftping in whill go right to his directory and not be
able to go higher.
My problem is adding a second user to be able to access the directory via
In other words, user1 has a partner named user1a.
I tried adding user1a in user1 group and not in user1 group...netiher
I tried adding user1a with no home directory and tried making their home
In all cases, ftp says 'cannot move to /home/user1' when trying to access
I am to the point it is time to forgo the security of chroot in vsftp to
just add a second user.
Any help appreciated.
