/home/jail is not a safe jail, check ownership and permissions.

My jailed user wasn’t connecting to the server via SFTP….
Had to see what was going on!!

[email protected]:/home# tail -f /var/log/auth.log

auth.log looked like this…

Jul 23 19:47:55 digitalwhores systemd-logind[580]: New session 1307 of user sftpuser.
Jul 23 19:47:55 digitalwhores jk_chrootsh[18961]: path /home/jail is group writable
Jul 23 19:47:55 digitalwhores jk_chrootsh[18961]: path /home/jail is writable for others
Jul 23 19:47:55 digitalwhores jk_chrootsh[18961]: abort, /home/jail is not a safe jail, check ownership and permissions.
I had to 0755 the folder /home/jail/
Even that way user wasn’t being able to connect… what was auth.log saying?
Jul 23 19:50:07 digitalwhores jk_chrootsh[19034]: abort, path /home/jail/./home/sftpu is group writable, set option 'relax_home_group_permissions' to relax this check
I had to 0755 the folder /home/jail/home/sftpu
Recommend folders with 0755.
chmod 0755 /home
chmod 0755 /home/jail
chmod 0755 /home/jail/home
chmod 0755 /home/jail/home/**USERS**
