After this I did a reboot of the apache server using the CMD httpd -k restart. I even tried restarting using the apachemonitor and rebooted the whole server. But apache still loads the files from c:/Apache24/htdocs
I can't find any more entries with htdocs to change. What am I missing?
i am relatively new to Plesk, i ordered a vserver with Plesk a couple of months ago and spend a lot of time setting everything up and developing several new websites. I am used to developping new websites on a hidden adress (sth like domain.com/dev/ instead of the top level) and then switch the document root to point to the hidden directory when all is done. This practice has served me and my clients well for the last 10 years.
Using the Plesk features like built-in applications seemed like a good idea at the time but wanting to switch the new websites live i have now found out that Plesk won't let me do this since..It is impossible to change document root because there are web applications installed on this website.
I had read somewhere on the interweb that the v12 would let me do this so i just spent the better part of today updating to v12 .. but alas no luck, the limitation is still there. Is there a way to remove this limitation ?
Basic question: does it matter where I set the document root for apache on a Linux system? I've googled this but haven't found a good answer.
This is for a VPS server running the Ubuntu (Debian) server os that I'm configuring. I'd prefer to simply create a new directory off the root and set that as the document root in the apache config file. Would this present any kind of security issue?
If that's no good, what's the best choice -- stick to the default?
I am running a LAMP server, working to get everything configured and as secure as I can make it. I have been trying to decide weather to change the document root to a different directory, or if it would be better/worse or more/less secure to chown and chmod the current directory.
Any input would be helpful, I just don't want to overlook some small detail as this is my first time handling a server on my own.
I've done some manual change of document root in httpd.conf for a user. I know that now, I don't need to to manual change since user can set there own folder!
Now, If I rebuild Apache, he will re-do all the configuration to the original one. Where can I find the settings for domain document root so I can change it and EasyApache will rebuild the httpd.conf correctly?
I don't want to remove the domain since I'll lost all email account!
I am trying to configure Apache 2.2 on Linux Mint 17 ( derived from Ubuntu 14 LTS).
I am wanting to create a variety of localhost sites all for development. One of those is built on Laravel 4. I have followed every tutorial I can find yet, for some reason which I do not understand ALL my sites route back to the Laravel root document when called from the browser. Just don't get it.
Here is my hosts file:
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 vince-XPS-8300 127.0.0.1 auburntree 127.0.0.1 example
Is it possible to change to root password to a VPS from inside HyperVM? I currently have 4 VPS's setup and I need to change the password for one of the VPses. Can I do this from inside HyperVM without having to go to SSH?
