Ubuntu 20.04 create user with access to a single directory
I created an Ubuntu 20.04 droplet and I want to create a user with SSH and SFTP access to a single directory, which will be the root of that user’s web directory.
I added the user using
sudo useradd -d /mnt/volume_nyc1_01/html/www mcl06 sudo passwd mcl06
SSH and SFTP ok, but he can browse the top directories, I want to limit access to only that directory
mcl06:mcl06 on www
Can someone help me?
