The TERM environment variable probably won't be enough, because we are talking not about the cursor moving maneuvers, but about the command line editing tool. You need to set up in your command line editing library, which command can enable the cursor moving in the different directions. Your shell is probably bash, which uses the readline library for ...

Have a look in /etc/termcap or /etc/terminfo (not sure which one FreeBSD uses) if there is a termcap entry for xterm-256color.

#1) Chrooting virtual hosts individually is not supported. The "Context" for the ChrootDir directive is "server config," and thus... "This means that the directive may be used in the server configuration files (e.g., httpd.conf), but not within any <VirtualHost> or <Directory> containers. It is not allowed in .htaccess files at all." [1] It is ...
