Exclamation Virtual hosts Help

Hi I wanted to know if this would work... Or if someone could give me help.

I'm trying to create a site that would allow different users in different directories but all on the same red hat linux box edit webpages.

the site would have 2 virtual directories like so:

PS (DOT) is in placement of .



user1 would be able to add content to the classifieds directory.
user2 would be allowed to add content to the free.

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName classifieds(DOT)domain(DOT)com
ServerAlias www(DOT)classifieds(DOT)domain(DOT)com classifieds(DOT)
ServerAdmin webmaster@domain(DOT)com
DocumentRoot /home/user1/public_html/classifieds
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/user1/public_html/classifieds/cgi-bin/

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName free(DOT)domain(DOT)com
ServerAlias www(DOT)free(DOT)domain(DOT)com free(DOT)domain(DOT)com
ServerAdmin webmaster@domain(DOT)com
DocumentRoot /home/user2/public_html/free
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/user2/public_html/free/cgi-bin/

so would this work? or would i need to do something different?

Did you google for this? Take a look at this page:

There are many sources on a first-page google or the apache documentation itself.
