I need help in apache security setting of a high school.
We have setup the server so that http ://myschool.edu/~student1/ will be translated to /home/student1/public_html/ .This much works fine. However, we also allow ssh access to students. Problem is, student2, who is another (ssh)user on the system, can also view the html code of student1. If student1 makes his public_html folder inaccessible to other users(chmod o-r), his webpage will throw a Permission Denied error.
Is there any solution to this problem?
Good question but I have a question for you. If student1 is offering web pages viewable to the public then what is stopping the public from right-clicking on student1's page and viewing the source code? Putting a page on the web is, by default, allowing access to the code.
I am not sure whether I understood what you said What I get is to make a group apache which has read/execute privileges on public_html directories. But that should mean student1 also be in apache group. Sorry if I didnt make myself clear earlier, but student2 also has his own webpage and all. So he too needs to be in apache group if his pages are to be displayed. And since both are now in same group, they both have read access to each others.....well.....am i confusing or is it just that i am confused???
