(Ubuntu 12.04) host multiples websites in (var/www and users websites at /home/user/public_html

  • Posted September 27, 2013

Hello All

My main website files are currently located at /var/www and I have SFTP some users to have own specific folders located at /home/user1 /home/user2 etc… (They can actually SFTP in and upload files etc…)

Is there a way to host at the same time in the same ubuntu 12.04 server, sites located at /var/www and located at /home/user?

In fact, I have created the virtual host files and enable them with documentRoot /homer/user1/public_html and /home/user2/public_hml but it is not working after a2ensite for user1 and user2

Can you please help to find a better solution?

Thanks Jacques

What’s the output of <pre>stat /home/user1 /home/user1/public_html</pre>?

You might be having permission problems. Make sure that the various <code>…/public_html</code> directories are visible to the public.

Apache already has an interface for this, see:
