Post how to call access out side the chroot jail files from the apache


Hai friends

I have one requirement i.e I want to call the java file from the php function using shell_exec command , i am using the chroot jail concept , if i using this command i am getting the empty file because java enviroment is outside the chroot jail,so how to access the the files those are out side the chroot jail

Please tell to me if any one know.

Thanks and Regards

Build the java environment inside the chroot. Giving a way outside the jail would completely defeat the purpose of it. If your java is in stalled to say /opt/java and your chroot is /var/chroot then you would need to have an install of java at /var/chroot/opt/java also.

PHP would depend if you were using php-cli or the apache php module... the module can be utilized even if loaded outside the chroot, the cli version (which someone people use so they can run php scripts as the user and such) would need installed.
