I did some reading up on jails and chroot. Sounds much more secure to
me. So both of these methods let me specify a directory on my drive
that is treated exactly like the root directory and access is
restricted to that directory. Does anybody have a good article or
tutorial I can read on how to implement it though. I'm running two
sites using Virtual Hosting.
I do appreciate all this help too.
