Users, Groups and Apache Virtual Hosting (With CGI)
The explanations for doing what I would like to do, which is set up a server with virtual hosting and CGI access, are NOT CLEAR ENOUGH (at least to me) as far as User, Group and web server are concerned.
I am using FC4 with the Apache 2.0 Web Server
The Install created the group "apache" I believe, but no user "apache". Is this correct?
How do the users get lined up with the apache users home path? Say it is not www or apache but tcws as such:
I have created two Linux Boxes and had similar results after extensive attempts due to the small problem, I surmised, that "root" user can not make the entire Web Server structuring, as once a user attempts to access a CGI file, it is "Forbidden".
OK, so, at WHAT POINT do I su (Switch User) to facilitate this?
Do I start as root, make the approrpriate folder (in this case "tcws") and then switch to user tcws to create the subdirectories of user folders?
As root, When I ADDUSER how do I make thier created home directory to be home/tcws/user ?
These users I add, how do they get attached to the "apache" group?
I have vsftpd enabled, will these users be able to FTP into thier respective home folders?
(1) Create a New User named: tcws
Next steps, anyone...?
