There are several questions around limiting ftp users to certain directories. However, most of them refer to vsftpd, which I don't think I have installed on my system. I'm running Ubuntu 9.04. How can I tell what ftp service I have installed, and then limit certain users to only the
/home/ftpuser directory instead of having full access to the file system?
I think I can add them to a separate group and give that group access to the proper directories, but then do I have to remove that groups permissions from all other directories? It seems like there should be an easy way like setting the
chroot_local_user value in the
/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file, but that doesn't exist on my system.
Here are the results of:
dpkg --list |grep -i ftp:
ii curl 7.18.2-8ubuntu4.1 Get a file from an HTTP, HTTPS or FTP server
I can connect to this servier using sftp but there are no ftp servers installed. Do I have to install one?
