First off I am a linux newbie so please don't assume much knowledge. I am using CentOS 5.8 (final) and using OpenSSH version 5.8p1.
I have made a user
playwithbits and I am attempting to
chroot them to the directory
I am using the following
match statement in my
Match group web-root-locked ChrootDirectory /home/nginx/domains/%u/public X11Forwarding no AllowTcpForwarding no ForceCommand /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server
# id playwithbits returns:
uid=504(playwithbits) gid=504(playwithbits) groups=504(playwithbits),507(web-root-locked)
I have changed the user's home directory to:
Now when I attempt to sftp in with this user I instantly get the message:
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
Edit: Following advice from @Dennis Williamson I have connected in debug mode (I think... correct me if I'm wrong).
I have made a bit of progress by using
chmod to set permissions recursively of all files in the directly to 700. Now I get the following messages when I attempt to log on (still connection refused):
