I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 server edition on my machine and I wish to run my own personal local server with other users in the same LAN.
First, I was wondering what folder directory structure is best for the web root?
Should I just use:
and start throwing web documents there or should I create a folder elsewhere (maybe the home directory)?
Second, in the
directory only the root user can create documents in there, however, I wish to have other users be able to create files in the document root and upload them via FTP. Should I change the permissions or the
www/ folder? Or again, should I create the document root elsewhere with different permissions? What is the safest way of doing this?
