http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to setup a ftp account for a user that has read/write access to one folder: /items/myuser I've set up the account with username 'myuser' in Linux with the adduser command. After that, I've changed my /etc/vsftpd.conf file to: chroot_local_user=NO chroot_list_enable=YES user_config_dir=/etc/vsftpd_user_conf I've also edited the /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list and added 'myuser' to this list. After that, I've edited /etc/vsftpd_user_conf/myuser and added the following line: local_root = /items/myuser After that, I've created this local_root folder and ran the following commands: chow (HowTos)
