for every customer with no shell login. The users home = /var/www/html/
name-of-site/htdocs. In vsftpd.conf I made sure that they cannot leave
their home dir (chroot jail). Some customers want to use secure ftp,
but then I have to give them shell login.
Is there a possibility to let users choose wether they want to use FTP
or SFTP without giving them remote shell login ?
Re: secure ftp with vsftpd without (remote) shell login
WebDAV over HTTPS, baby, WebDAV over HTTPS. It avoids the FTP firewall
issues, you can use any user authentication supported by Apache, and
it's built into the lftp and cadaver comand line tools and many web
clients for cut and paste installation.
The one thing it doesn't handle well is symlinks, and it takes a bit
of tweaking to turn off PHP or Perl scripting for editing websistes
that use it. But seriously, it's good stuff.
