I'm not as familiar with vsftp, but there may be an option to
"FollowSymLinks On", or something that you need to set. I think
Jeroen as a very good point about the softlink, though. Even with
this option on (if it exists for vsftp), you may not be able to do it
with the chroot. One thing you can do is try a hard link ('ln'
without the '-s') or mount a local directory to one that would be
available in the chroot using the '--bind' option.
# mount --bind /home/kirash/cgi-bin /var/www/virtual/kirash
