First of all, I read all the chroot questions I could find on the net and on Superuser. Basically they all cover running a 32bit app running on 64bit host and so on.
I want to have an isolated system in total chroot (running lighttpd, mysql, ssh, etc from there). (For security reasons I have to isolate the dev from the live one.) So I installed the chroot environment, mounted all the neccessary things and chrooted in. Everything went fine. Edited
/etc/ssh/sshd_config to use port 22222 instead of 22. Used
service ssh start then. It says service running but if I try this:
ssh -p 22222 localhost I get "Connection refused". The chrooted is system is very minimal so far so there is no firewall, hosts.allow/deny or anything.
ANY idea are welcome.
ps.: The chroot environment will be a development area as I already mentioned. I thought chroot is the easiest way but if you say KVM is better or something I can go for it. The machine is easily capable of running even 10 VMs easily.
