I’m currently on an Ubuntu 16.04 VPS with Apache2, trying to run a small public file host. However, I have noticed that PHP execution is enabled within the files directory, allowing people to run Shell programs from said PHP files. I have tried adding “php_flag engine off” within my .htaccess file among other fixes, but nothing seems to work. I’m not sure what to do.
