webhost - public_html folder
Hi all, i'm new about the "world" of web hosting. So i decided to start with a small droplet to create a webserver that hosts multiple website. So i decided to install LAMP and some test folder under the path:
The structure is like this:
/var/www/html/site1/ /var/www/html/site2/ /var/www/html/site3/
You can see i don't use the suggested "public_html" folder.
This because (and for sure im wrong) i don't see the advantages to have something like this:
/var/www/html/site1/public_html /var/www/html/site2/public_html /var/www/html/site3/public_html
Where are the advantages to use that folder ? every provider uses that so of course there is a reason (probably about to be more safe)
Can someone give me some basic example why this folder is necessary?
