I'm happy to report that member demae / philip just completed major "reconstructive surgery" http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif on my DI server. Great work and highely recomended.

This stuff:

MySQL 3.23.36 has been installed.
phpMyAdmin 2.1.0 has been installed.
PHP 4.0.4pl1 has been installed.
mod_gzip has been installed.
The DI Control Panel still works.
mod_perl was already disabled.
Plus a neat little thing he coded which places an account/domain user "in jail" so they can't browse outside their domains directory structure.

Nice http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Does this work under telnet (or ssh) or only under ftp?

Good question. Works via FTP. I believe the DI control panel takes care of exactly what a user can do via Telnet including turning shell access off for a given user.

Since I don't host third parties who need or even want telnet perhaps Phil can exspand on this.

The script that I wrote will:

(1) turn off shell access to the user
(2) restrict their FTP access to their own directory

It is possible to chroot jail a user without turning off their shell access, but it's more complicated. All the binaries and libraries that they may need have to be copied inside the chroot jail, otherwise their commands won't work when they login.

One thing that I've always wondered about is that on the Dialtone Internet network status page, they say "*NOTE: The public distribution of this confidential information is strictly prohibited.*"

My thought is, don't prospective customers have a right to know what is going on with their network?
