Adding SFTP-only user to Ubuntu Server

To add a SFTP-only user, you'll need to make sure your SSH config settings are correct, add a new user/group and set permissions for your new user. For step-by-step directions, see below. Omit sudo if you're logged in as root.

Directions

  1. Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and make sure to add the following at the end of the file:

     Match group filetransfer
     	ChrootDirectory %h
    
You can’t perform that action at this time.
