SFTP access with vhost?


#1

I’ve just imaged my VM with vhost - it looks like a great and easy to use system.

I’m wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to give users SFTP access rather than FTP?

Can this be done through vhost or do I need to set them up as new users with useradd?

Thanks
Simon

I was trying to setup something similar, to allow a user to drop off files on the server using SFTP to a chrooted jail directory. Didn’t really know where to start, but the very helpful Telyn in Bytemark support suggested this guide:

Just followed it through on a bigV VM running Symbiosis and it worked perfectly, so thought i’d post in case anyone else is looking for the answer.
