Restricting a users SFTP access to one directory.
I am trying to set up my droplet so that an SFTP user can’t move up to view other directories above their own /home.
I added the following to sshd_config:
Match Group filetransfer
Then I added the user the group filetransfer .
Then I added chown user:filetransfer /home
At that point the user is not able to log in via SFTP at all. What am I missing?
