Ubuntu Server 12.04
I need to allow the user
offlineuser to upload files to the
var/www/mysite/web/ directory only. This directory acts as a site root as well as an upload location (legacy setup).
With the following commented out , they can upload anywhere. As soon as I uncomment this, they cannot connect at all.
AllowUsers offlineuser ubuntu Subsystem sftp internal-sftp Match Group sftponly ChrootDirectory /var/www/mysite/web/%u ForceCommand internal-sftp PasswordAuthentication no X11Forwarding no AllowTcpForwarding no
offlineuser is a member of sftponly group
:pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user offlineuser by (uid=0) : fatal: bad ownership or modes for chroot directory component "/var/www/mysite/" : pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user offlineuser
So, this is pretty clear , but do I really have to chown the dir to offlineuser? Will that not cause issues if www-data wants to write to it (which is likely?)
