sorry for dumb question, but I am a newbie in Ubuntu administration.
I configure vsftpd service and it work fine when user connect thought FTP
But when user connect thought SFTP vsftpd not used (I stop vsftpd to check)
I see that ftp user "sy" has running process /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server
How I can "switch" this process with vsftpd to use it for SFTP connection?
thank you

found possible solution
I'll try and comment if successful

    What are you trying to achieve, exactly? AFAIK vsftpd does not provide an SFTP service - it provides FTPS - different protocol, different port – steeldriver Aug 7 '16 at 12:18

ok, vsftpd not provide sftp access, so I just block using SFTP on my server with commenting line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

#Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server

as result I can use FTP over TLS with vsftpd (chroot)
