Re:setting up ftp users for linux and locking them into their own directory.
I am still having issues with this on the linux server.
here is what i do.
First create a user and since you can't drill down to the folder directly at the user creation level I give them fpt for the www directory checked.
then I go to Tools/ folders and Security / ACL Manager
Then i browse to the folder that i want to set permission on.
Then I select the user from the user list created and I only want them to have Read/Write/Delete privileges however, when i actually set the permissions it says they have Read/Write/Exec (this is no matter what i select in the selection list)
However, when i try to actually ftp for the site through a browser like the clients will do. after logging in I see all directories under the primary user account then when i select a domain I am able to see other folders and then when i select www at that point it stops giving access and won't let you actually get to the folders for which the user should have been dumped into to begin with.
Something is really broken with the way to set up ftp users in HC for Linux.
I suggest that when the web admin is creating the user they should be able to select the exact folder that they want to give ftp access to.
Anyway what i am doing at this point for a client is going through the panel to create the user then having my tech staff go and set the proper permissions manually on the server. Unless someone has a better Idea.
I like being able to set up sites on the Linux box and have billing all in one place however, there are some basic functionality pieces missing in the control panel for the Linux side of things that CPanel was so easy deal with like user creation. I think this is the worst part of the HC panel at the moment.
I could really use some help on this if someone has any suggestions.
