comment What should the owner of `.` and `..` directories be?
You say noone should own those and that it is nonsensical to give special permissions or ownership, but then why does the OS allow you to do so? That makes no sense to me. I feel my question in that context is perfectly valid.

@TomTom In a way, it seems that ls showing those "directories" makes no sense - not my question.

comment What should the owner of `.` and `..` directories be?
Yes, I understand their purpose, but from a technical point of view I don't really know how the system uses those "directories" and it makes little sense to me why they are listed as directories (or even listed at all) with permissions and ownership when in fact you are saying it makes no sense. I mean, I was inclined to believe the answer to my question would be along the lines of what you've said.

comment How can I configure a dynamic virtual host on Apache?
I've not used mod_rewrite with virtual hosts before. Where do I put the rewrite rule within the virtual host configuration? Could you give me a solution for doing this with dynamic subdomains instead? e.g. Where the host name is branch1.example.com?
