Hi There guys, I have a little server that I use for testing purposes and im
having some problems with FTP.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and proftpd

When I do not chroot local users it will go to there home directory when
they log in (/home/ftp for my FTP user) but the problem with that is they
can get out quite easily so i tried to jail them in the chroot.

For some reason whenever I set that it puts the user straight into the root
directory and doesn't let them into anything. I was expecting it to just
chroot the user in /home/ftp

I did put this on the Ubuntu Forum but it appears no-one could answer, i
bumped it twice after it dropped from the fifth page...
