 RE: FTP with no shell access - Discovered the easy

Another nice thing is that you can change their path to something like:

/usr/home/joe/./public_html

(notice the /./) and upon login the ftp daemon will put them in /usr/home/joe/public_html, and will not let them "cd out of" /usr/home/joe. Some additional files need to be copied to /usr/home/joe (the same stuff that's in your anonymous ftp directory) -- well, not all can be copied, some have to be made, but once you have the script it's easy.

What's cool about this is they can ftp in, but they can't go anywhere other than where you want them to go.

It should work. It worked with wu-ftpd a couple of years ago...
