Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the VSFTPD service installed on my linux server. I am using a ftp connection through FileZilla and by default, the user home directory is opened.

The problem is that with this user, I can also see other user files, download them etc.

IS there any possibility to restrict that.

I tryed with "chroot_local_user=YES" but still nothing.
