I am following a book's chapter on setting up Virtual Hosts. The process is:
1.create a file
2.set its content to
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.example.com ServerAlias example.com DocumentRoot /var/www/html/example/ </VirtualHost>
apachectl configtest and
This appears to be working. But more commonly,
DocumentRoot is located in
/home/exampleuser/public_html. This path is problematic to apache group so I modified permissions to
drwxr-x--- 3 exampleuser apache 4096 Feb 8 09:50 exampleuser drwxr-xr-x 2 exampleuser apache 4096 Feb 8 09:55 public_html
exampleuser is the user that to which the the directory belongs and was created with
useradd exampleuser command.
I also added this code in
/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and reloaded httpd.service.
<Directory “/home/exampleuser/public_html”> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Require all granted </Directory>
The book doesn't state what is the correct permission configuration so I am wondering if I have done it correctly? Is there a security issue if I leave the permissions as they are now?
