Proftp - Chroot More Than One User

I thought this would be easy but I am having troubles making it happen. I had a single user chrooted like this:

<VirtualHost mydomian.com >
DefaultRoot /home/user1
</VirtualHost>

I now need to add a second user to the server that is also chrootred. I assumed you would just add another VirtualHost Like:

<VirtualHost mydomian.com >
DefaultRoot /home/user1
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost mydomian.com >
DefaultRoot /home/user2
</VirtualHost>

This does not work right. If I ftp in as the first user I am taken to the first users chrooted folder. Now If I ftp in as the second user I am taken the first users folder. I have tried many combos of the above script but nothings works as I need it to. Does someone know how this is done?

Thanks

have a look here http://www.tjw.org/chroot-login-HOWTO/ which will create a user and change root to the only directory you appointed to, and the new user can't access other place.

Well , I am not so sure what exactly you wanna do , but I think if we have to make different users with different dirs , the config may smth like this :
<VirtualHost nydomain.com>
    <Anonymous ~user1>
    </Anonymous>
    <Anonymous ~user2>
    </Anonymous>
</VirtualHost>
