User VHosting

Posted by on August 30, 2006 | No comments

So, previously, I detailed how to do web virtual hosting to directories on the file system. This is all well and good, but I want to have users pidgeon holed into their own directories, plus I want users own websites to be stored under their own directories in a similar format to that used in the previous article (eg. /home/user/web/example.org/subdomain)

The problem lies with mapping domain names (example.org) onto user accounts (Alice? Bob?). This is where Apache and mod_rewrite come to the rescue again. On Wintermute I’ve installed Apache 2, but this recipe will work just as well with Apache 1.3. » Read the full post

So, to reiterate – the main server (Wist) will hold all my own stuff, then I’ll be creating a user Virtual Server (Wintermute) on top of that for users to play with and/or break. All the user stuff is backended in a Xoops database using Xoops groups.

Wist is installed with Debian Sarge using a custom kernel including the vserver patches from Debian. This sort of thing is detailed elsewhere so I won’t go over it again here.

The core server software (all from the Debian archive) will include: Apache 1.3 with PHP4, Apache-SSL, Bind, MySQL 4.1, Exim4, ClamAV and Dovecot (I’ll be detailing the email setup seperately) » Read the full post
