The way that I have this setup on my server is:

  • Create system account for user.
  • Set home directory for user as the document root (ie /web/example.com
  • Configure FTP server to not allow users above their home directory, so they cannot access /web/, only /web/example.com
  • Disallow telnet/ssh access to user.

    Hope this helps!
