Sorry to put my nose here. but your jailkit never worked for anyone.

Thank you for your reply!  Unfortunately (or fortunately, for security’s sake), ISPConfig locks that webxxx folder, and a standard chown will fail, even with sudo/root.

But, good news!  I found the article I was looking for, which shows how to (temporarily) remove the protection to fix the ownership/permissions.



As soon as the ownership is fixed, the ssh works once more.

Thank you for your help, and your fantastic software!

No experience with ISPConfig, but if you have terminal access it is an easy fix.


you can run 'chown root:root /path/to/jail' and that will fix the problem. jk_check -j /path/to/jail will report if there are more issues.


If there are multiple directories affected, you can even run:

chown -R root:root /path/to/jail

chown jaileduser:group /path/to/jail/path/to/home

We are running ISPConfig, and one of the jails (webxxx) somehow is owned by the jailed user, rather than root:root.  We thought there was a way to fix this, but we can’t seem to find the documentation for it online.  Would anyone know how to do this?


Basically, we /think/ the sequence was:

Change a bit in the chroot to make it no longer a chroot (or be able to edit it). 
Fix the folder ownership.
Reset the bit to lock the jail again.

Does that sound familiar to anyone?
