Centos recently updated to 7.3 and there's been problems with sshd sftp group permissions. I have one user that is chrooted to it's home directory, and that user is in group sftponly. Then i have the /var/www directory, which has 775 permissions and owner is apache and owner group is sftponly. I have a bind link pointing from /home/user/files/web --> /var/www, so the user can access /var/www even though being chrooted to it's home directory. I can view files in /var/www with that user, but impossible to edit or add anything. This worked fine before the big Centos 7.3 update, and now it's stopped working. Any ideas?


This is a known bug and it will be fixed in the next update. Before that, it is good to stay on the previous version.

  • Approximately when is the fix coming? – Jojo595 Dec 16 '16 at 20:03
