I want to configure user ftpuser to sftp for an existing apache owned directory /var/www/webiste
I added it as new user and made /var/www/webiste its home directory,
useradd -md /var/www/website -s /bin/bash ftpuser
Subsystem sftp internal-sftp Match User ftpuser ChrootDirectory /var/www/website X11Forwarding no AllowTcpForwarding no ForceCommand internal-sftp
The directory is owned now by root, and have acl permissions for www-data user:
# ls -ltr drwxrwx---+ 5 root root 4096 Nov 8 2012 website # getfacl website/ # file: website/ # owner: root # group: root user::rwx user:www-data:rwx group::rwx group:www-data:rwx
But whenever i try to connect with SFTP, i get the following debug errors:
ftpuser@ftp_server's password: debug3: packet_send2: adding 32 (len 80 padlen 16 extra_pad 64) debug2: we sent a password packet, wait for reply debug1: Authentication succeeded (password).

Any Ideas to troubleshoot that issue?
