Subject [users@httpd] apache permission problem please help
Date Tue, 24 Aug 2004 21:09:04 GMT
SEE ERROR BELOW

Was playing with permissions on my home dirs last night and changed 
everything to chmod 700 had some problem with users looking at and 
copying other users webpages.  I have a directory in each users home dir 
named www where they keep there web files ie /usr/home/username/www  so 
i guess when i changed everything to 700 apache was unable to use these 
files.

Now i have tried the best i can to change everything back set  to chmod 
to 655  and even tried moving a site to /usr/local/www/username in hope 
that apache could read it there but no luck what has happened please help.

Wait now things have started to work, for the web site that i moved to 
/usr/local/www/username. There seems to be some lag  after i make 
changes to the permissions and restart apache is this possible.

I have a real mess on my hands now guess i will have to play with 
permissions and modes now to get all the sites backup.  How do i set up 
home directories that are secure for each user ie other users on the 
system cannot read them but apache can.  Should i move all web pages to 
the /usr/local/www dir.  Also is there some way to automate this so that 
when i create a new user or modify a file things will work correctly.  
Have been using UNIX for many years finally got up the courage to play 
with modes and perms.  Guess i  shot myself in the foot like i have been 
warned about by many people and docs.

PLEASE HELP
