This should be migrated to unix.SE.

comment How to allow passwd in chroot?
I have non-set (null?) passwords in my non-chroot shell, and passwd works fine there. Also, AFAIK cracklib is for checking if a password is admissible, which it does. If I enter for instance the password 1, passwd will refuse to set it and prompt me for a different password.

comment http://localhost not working
Does the error log (of the apache) show anything if you access http://localhost?

comment http://localhost not working
I think that does not answer the question, because the problem is not in the result of the ping, but probably that entering http://localhost in the browser does not get one the same page as http://127.0.0.1. However, this is pure speculation as the OP did not state the actual problem.

comment How to allow passwd in chroot?
I added /etc/pam.d to the script and created a new bind. Inside the jail, I can see the correct directory. However, that did not change the error message.

Thanks for the hint, I completely forgot to provide /etc/shadow inside the chroot. Please see the part after EDIT.
