Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_userdir question

Thanks all for answer.

I have a website ( and is on /var/www/, is
hosted on a cloud vps, I have created some users for my friends on it
and I've enabled mod_userdir so they can use their public_html
They want try some tecnologies (maybe python, golang, node.js,
whatever) to build their own web projects on their user space
something like this, thats why i'm
asking about if they can use another language different to php in
order to achieve their goal.

Thanks for reply, I'll take a look to mod_cgi.
