Firstly, I admit I am a Linux / Apache nOOb, so I would really appreciate it if your answers are in plain English (smile)
Is the apache localhost server available to all Linux accounts?
If I use my Linux admin account to set up a web app in the /var/www/ directory, can people logged into other Linux accounts use that web app too by just typing in http://www.localhost/ in their web browsers?
(I am talking about people who are at that computer, not people trying to access it over the internet).
I will be setting up a web-based Point Of Sale (pos) system on a computer at one of our brick and mortar retail stores. (There is not internet access there).
There will be two LINUX user accounts on that computer. One for me (the administrator) and one for the Sales People ("Sales").
So how should I set up apache so that the sales people can login to the Linux "Sales" user account and use the web-based app?
By default, if the web app files are in the /var/www/ directory, can all Linux user accounts browse them in their web browsers just by going to
Or do I need to do something else? (like set up a public_html directory ???)
