A question about FTP
I've been trying to set up ftp accounts all day now, my problem is when I make the user I enter this for there directory -d /downloads
but they are still able to go above /downloads and see everything else such as /root /bin etc etc. How do I fix it so they cannon see the important files and only the downloads directory.?

No, everything by root. I don't really want to install a program as it's mainly just a small vps.
Here is the line I use when making a user,
useradd -d /downloads -r daryl -g userftp -s /bin/false
But like I said I can still get out of the /downloads directory and go above Can't delete anything however but it's still not what I want to do.

It's been a while since I used ProFTPd.
Try following option in your config file:
Don't forget to restart ProFTPd afterwards.
Having severs with customer data on it without proper monitoring is like having one night stand without using protections - eventually, there will be an 'oh s**t!' moment.
this link will help you set it up in the way you need it:
