I want to configure sftp with ubuntu. I have it install and working with a regular user. I would like to make it so the user can only sftp and nothing else. I would also like to set the users home dir to /home/share

How can I do this?

I am using openssh-server sftp. Can you do that with that one? I can't use a regular ftp, it has to be sftp.

Are you aware of the scponly package?
scponly can also handle sftp access as it is a special shell for restricting ssh access, see:
