    Hello Everyone,

    Quick question.

    I have cPanel on a RHL7.3 and am trying to "jailshell" a couple of my users. The problem is that whenever they try to ssh, they are disconnected with the following message:

    "Could not exec SHELL: /bin/bash
    Connection to domain.com closed."

    Now, I checked the /etc/passwd file to see what was going on, and the shell is set to /usr/local/cpanel/bin/jailshell

    Does anyone no what is happening here ... and how to fix it?

    Thanks
    Lamp

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/jailshell is the jailshell. The idea (v. basic version) of jailshell is that / is not really / and that each user has it's own virtual root and files etc.

    What is the script you are having problems with exactly?

    well...

    when the user runs the command:

    ssh username@domain.com,

    they get kicked out with a message saying

    " Could not exec SHELL: /bin/bash
    Connection to domainname.com closed."

    So, in essence they cannot ssh... yet they have a "jailshell" permission in their password file. Having said that, they should be able to ssh into their "virtual" account like you said... but they can't.

    Anyone ever find a solution to this? Migrated a serve to CPanel/64 on a Fedora Core 2 / Dual Opteron platform and ran into this exact problem, word for word.
