I am trying to get Apache set up on my home Linux Box. I have come to
something that seems odd, and need help in determing where to look for
In order for the ~username directories to be "viewable" I have had to
set the rights to the /home/user and /home/user/public_html
directories to 755.
Is this "normal"? I would prefer to be able to set the rights to 744
or something like that. (My ISP has the user directories set to 700).
I do not want the "users" to be able to exec scripts, etc. except from
the .../httpd/cgi-bin/ directory. So there should not be any
executable files in the users' directories.
What "Options" in the <Directory /home/*/public_html>... </Diectory>
sequence should I be setting for a "plain-vanilla" setup? Currently my
options are "Indexes" only (I think that is the syntax - off the top
of ym head from work).
Thanks in advance,
-tomas (trying to shed my NEWBIE tag)
