    Hello Community is there a Solution to change the FTP Root Directory of an cPanel Account to jail him in his own home directory? I have tried the Default Root ~ Entry ine the proftpd Config File, but it don't works.

    Hello :)

    Could you clarify where your cPanel user has FTP access to beyond the home directory?

    Thank you.

    the user can see his complete cagefs filesystem when he establish an sftp connection, its no security Problem in my opinion but some customers coul be get a little bit nervous when they saw a complete filesystem.
