comment LAMP stack security question - uploading files to server
Mike: thanks for the quick response. I am very new to all of this (both Linux and Linux admin). I prefer the SFTP otion. Could you please give some more info on using SFTP (especially with regard to using the SSH keys - I suppose I will have to generate my own? [I dont know how). Also, I would like to run the commands in a shell script, so I need to be able to somehow automate this, ie. carry out the file transfer without being prompted for uname/pwd.

+1 for taking the time to answer. Apologies for the delay in testing this out and getting back to you... Been tied up with something else - but I hope to give feedback and select an answer once I have tested this

@Carl: Thanks for that. I am now getting a 403 Forbidden page (which is infinitely better than a blank page!). I took a look again at the apache log file and saw this error: [Fri Feb 19 17:23:33 2010] [crit] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: /home/morpheous/work/websites/testproject/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable
