PAM_CHROOT(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		 PAM_CHROOT(8)

NAME
     pam_chroot	-- Chroot PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type	control-flag pam_chroot	[arguments]

DESCRIPTION
     The chroot	service	module for PAM chroots users into either a predeter-
     mined directory or	one derived from their home directory.	If a user's
     home directory as specified in the	passwd structure returned by
     getpwnam(3) contains the string ``/./'', the portion of the directory
     name to the left of that string is	used as	the chroot directory, and the
     portion to	the right will be the current working directory	inside the
     chroot tree.  Otherwise, the directories specified	by the dir and cwd
     options (see below) are used.

     also_root	Do not hold user ID 0 exempt from the chroot requirement.

     always	Report a failure if a chroot directory could not be derived
		from the user's	home directory,	and the	dir option was not
		specified.

     cwd=directory
		Specify	the directory to chdir(2) into after a successful
		chroot(2) call.

     dir=directory
		Specify	the chroot directory to	use if one could not be
		derived	from the user's	home directory.
