One way is to put sticky bit on the target directory. It would be difficult for home directory because user should have full access.

chown -Rv root:user /path
chmod 1775 /path

Open in new window

Hi All,

I am sorry , I agree applying sticky bit , But still after applying that user can delete the newly uploaded file.

Is there something we can restrict commands in sftp?

If you can post the permission of the directories (ls -lah) perhaps we can determine what is wrong.

You can disable commands in ftp but I cannot think of a way to prevent users running commands via sftp session since it is a extension of the ssh protocol.
