Self employed UNIX Administrator, iOS- and Web-Programmer.

When i was 13 and could setup debian, apache with cgi and perl, i thought to myself "what good is knowing how to setup stuff when you don't have any idea how to work with it", so i started coding websites and shell-scripts.

When i was 16 and had to choose a career for my apprenticeship, i thought "what good is coding when you don't know enough about the hardware you work with". That's when i did my apprenticeship as a system engineer (mainly unix).

The circle closed, today i am a fabulous allrounder ;]

comment Hosting Folder in the home directory using nginx
you actually chmod your $HOME go+x (not +r, x -> just access, r -> reading/listing contents), inside your home you leave everything it is and only set your public_html 0755. that way other processes can "stat" that directory (through the +x) and run ls on public_html (remember 755)

comment Hosting Folder in the home directory using nginx
yes. nginx already has a config-test parameter where you can check. if that command returns with an error you know whats happening. sample shellscript would be: cp $HOME/.nginx.conf $HOME/.nginx.conf.back && vi $HOME/.nginx.conf; nginx config-test-syntax... && if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then cp $HOME/.nginx.conf.back $HOME/.nginx.conf; fi something like that, should give you start

you could basically wrap an editor (like vi/vim/emacs) around it, unless nginx configtest works, it will always copy back the original (temporary backupfile before editing)

You could give the user the possibility to have his own nginx.conf, something like (not 100% correct, but the direction is there): if (-e /home/$1/.nginx.conf) { include(/home/$1/.nginx.conf); } there the user could do his own setup, but also break the server-restart. this is a bit of a compilcated issue.

comment (Linux) Can multiple processes bind to the same TCP port on a per-use basis?
Oh sorry, i inversed your problem. Why not simply git-ignore that .ini-file on a per-developer base? I'd recommend having some sort of default.ini which has to be copied to production.ini or something like that. that way you can have your defaults in your VCS and also have local developer changes which don't get commited. Also good if people update from your project, then their config won't get overwritten.
