Restrict FTP user to certain directory


#1

I want to create a new FTP user and restrict their access to only a specific folder on my server. Is this possible?

For example… I have the folder http://www.l7productions.com/boardgames/

I want to limit their access to that folder only.

This is called remapping. See the wiki:

Oh, by the way, a folder can be owned by only one user, so if this other user owns ‘boardgames,’ you won’t easily be able to modify its contents.
