Jail proftpd user virtualmin

This is a quick reminder on how to chroot FTP users with Virtualmin (Webmin).

What exactly is needed is the modification of the DefaultRoot setting in ProFTPd.

This can be set that in Virtualmin by browsing to Webmin>Servers>ProFTPd Server>Files and Directories, and setting the option labeled “Limit users to directories” to “Home directory”. Saving it, and clicking  “Apply changes” in the upper right corner.
