how to allow user to host a site

Hi All,

I have configured a site by using Apache(httpd.conf)

How to allow a user to host a site in that machine?

Please give any idea...

Thanks in advance!!

Um... I guess I always thought that it was the server that hosts a website... perhaps you want a (non root) user to be able to administer the site without granting that user full root access to the server.

If so, then you will want to look at sudo.

Do you mean that you want users to have their own content under If so, have a look at Apache's UserDir directive. There's some info at on this.
