Linux-vsftpd : restrict user to root directory

To avoid security issues or restrict user to root directory you have to limit users of vsftp to only their home directory. So how to do it ? 

Open vsftpd configuration file - /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf :

Make sure following line exists and uncommented (add if not exists):

chroot_local_user=YES 

Save and close the file. Restart vsftpd service.

/etc/init.d/vsftpd restart 

 Done. Using a ftp client to check with some acccount.
