#Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server
Subsystem sftp internal-sftp

Match Group filetransfer
   ChrootDirectory %h
   X11Forwarding no

Add a new group

addgroup --system filetransfer

chown root:root /home/username
chmod 755 /home/username
cd /home/username
mkdir tmp
chown username:filetransfer tmp
