|Free Software at Schools: Installing and Maintaining a Skolelinux/Debian-edu Network; Based on Debian Sarge, prerelease pr05|
|Prev||Chapter 9. Services Out-of-the-Box in Skolelinux/Debian-edu||Next|
Skolelinux/Debian-edu comes with the Apache webserver, it almost works out-of-the bugs. It's just one small thing missing; telling the configuration file that the users home-directory is not in /home, but rather in /skole/tjener/home0. This has been reported as a bug, see bug 639. You must fix the config file /etc/apache/httpd.conf at about line 342, replace
Then Apache must be restarted
Then make sure the the user has a directory called public_html with permissions 755 and owned by the user.
mkdir --mode=755 ~username/public_html
chown username:username ~username/public_html
If you don't feel like manually creating these public_html directories, then you can add them to /usr/share/webmin/ldap-users/createhomedir like this
# Make directory for public_html files, readable for everybody. mkdir "$homedir/public_html" chmod 0755 "$homedir/public_html"have a look at default directories for your users.
If you already have created your users, this little one-liner will create public_html for all users:
for dir in $(getent passwd | grep home0 |cut -d":" -f6) ;
do mkdir $dir/public_html ;
chmod 755 $dir/public_html ;
chown --reference $dir:$dir $dir/public_html ;
Once the Apache config-file has been fixed, and the user has a directory public_html with correct permissions, then it's time to create a html-file, save it in public_html and see if this works. Create a document, in e.g OpenOffice.org, save it in html- format, and save it in the directory public_html under the name index.html
If everything works, you should be able to see that file in the url http://tjener.intern/~username
