If I'll have a symlink to my /home/user/website, will it save me the job of copying files to /var/www. i.e if I make changes to a php file which is located in /home/user/website, will the change be shawn when I browse to localhost/"symlink_to_website" ?
Good point. I didnīt see this. Well, I guess it will load the new php file, as requested.
I use to have index.html in /var/www/apache2-default/, so, even when I change other symlinked files, I have to log as root if I edit index.html. But I never tried to symlink index.html itself. Did you?
Glad to know. Maybe I'll use this solution, also. Kinda used to transfer files as root...
I don't see how it can compromise security at a first sight... But I'll check further. I'm no sec guru.
