SFTP not working

    I have had long problems with this. I have been able to set up TLS/SSL support at least, but really want SFTP to work. I have chrooted shell access on, but when I connect it simply quits

    It accepts the password, but as soon as that is done it quits.

    with -v option;

    What to do?? I have Plesk 8.6 on a Debian server. It has worked before, but since some upgrades ago it didn't work anymore. It would be really nice to block out obscure FTP login, so everything is just a tad more secure :)

    I had the same Problem with 8.6. on a Debian Server. Fixed it by matching the Subsystem entry in /etc/ssh/sshd_config with the actual location of sftp-server in the chroot environment.

    The entry pointed to:
    Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server

    But the actual path to sftp-server in the chroot was:

    You can fix that by moving sftp-server in the chroot "template" in /var/www/vhosts/chroot/ and recreating the chroot with /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/chrootmng or by editing the entry in sshd_config.
