    i made a user with jailshell access ... he cant see most of the folders on the server but /etc and /var are viewable... ofc he cant modify.
    Is this normal? i want to limit the shell access ONLY to his folder.

    Hello :)

    This is standard due to the nature of how the filesystem works on Linux. Note that while you may be able to view some directories outside of /home, all account-specific data should be restricted.

    Thank you.
