NO. You don't understand. What do you mean system? Tell us the output of
the following cmd, that should say where the binary is looking for the

You mean to put your users in 'chrooted' environment.

That's an utter lie in a broad daylight. Why? You don't understand what
'comments' are. I will help you here:

See that's how you do it. We just need what options you have enabled
without straining our eyes and mind.
You don't need this, if you are starting the server from 'xinetd'.
You should read the 'man vsftpd.conf', it explains things clearly.
If enabled, along with chroot_local_user , then a chroot() jail
location may be specified on a per-user basis. Each user's jail
is derived from their home directory string in /etc/passwd. The
occurence of /./ in the home directory string denotes that the
jail is at that particular location in the path.
