Instruction for enabling limited access via ssh by using sftp-server as shell.

If you need to enable sftp access for some of your clients and you don’t want to give them the full shell access /bin/bash or /bin/sh, now you can do that with a few clicks in your cwp.admin.

In your cwp.admin go to
Left menu –> Security –> Shell Access
Now select the user and set the shell to sftp-server and that is it.

***NOTE: This access is NOT chroot-ing users into they home folder like via regular ftp.
But its much more better and secure then giving a user the full shell access like /bin/bash or /bin/sh .
