Thanks in advance for any and all help on this topic. I have set up an FTP server that works pretty well via PureFTP. I want to do the following and have been unable to find any information on how to.
1) limit users public_html folder size. Basically users(teachers) will put their web pages here and I want to limit how much they can store.
2) When they log into the server, I want the default directory to be public_html, and not their home directory.
Is there a way I can do both of these. Thanks again in advance.
I think the problem with having the teachers' default directory be public_html is that the web pages will then have to be placed in a subdirectory under public_html (like this public_html/public_html). This could be confusing.
You could get their FTP clients to default to the public_html directory.
You can play around with one home directory using the usermod command with the -d qualifier. Check the man pages for details.
You can implement per user quotas under Linux. Check this link
