Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 - Password Protect Directories With System User

Apr 12, 2011

I want to password protect say a subdirectory, or a subdomain via vhost, with a username/password, but use the systems users and passwords as logins -> I want go avoid any and all .htaccess... as everyone should be doing anyway How would I go about doing this? I know my way around the apache configs fairly well, so I'm not a total newb -> I now I can use .useraccess and .pwaccess but that's flat file driven, not based off of the systems users/passwords.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 - Browse Directories In /var/www From Firefox - Error "The Folder Contents Could Not Be Displayed"

Aug 16, 2011

I recently installed Apache on Lucid Lynx (Macbook 1.1) using the following tutorial: [URL] Everything appears to work correct except that when I browse http://localhost/ in Firefox, I cannot see any of the directories. Although, files such as html documents are visible. When I view the /var/www directory using the default graphical file browser, all of its child directories have Xs over their icons. When I attempt to open the directory "js", the following error message displays:The folder contents could not be displayed.
You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "js".

I figured this was preventing Firefox from viewing the directories. So I launched it with the "gksu" command to see if it would help. I still couldn't see directories when browsing http://localhost/ I'm basically trying to achieve functionality identical to the MAMP local server for Mac OS X. I'm about to start a LAMP project for a new client so having this up and running is important!

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache User_dir Mod And Home Directories - Automatically Set When User Account Created?

May 28, 2010

I want to automaticly set the group ownership of user home directories to a group that the user is not part of. This is so that Apache can be part of this group and can access user public HTML directory, but other users are not able to access in any way the files in the users home directory. What I have seen that works manually is adding the user and then changing the group for the home directory. But I want to automatically set this when the user account is created. WHat I see happening is that when /etc/skel is copied, it automatically sets the group and ownership of everything to the users default group and ownership. I've seen some suggestions on setting permissions, but these don't seem to work because it seems that users are able to cd into a directory and not list it, but if they know the file name they can access the file.

Ubuntu :: Password Protect A Folder On A Flash Drive?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a folder on my flash drive where I keep sensitive info (important numbers, passwords, etc.) and would like to protect this info in the event that someone gets a hold of this drive.

I figured the best method was encryption so I started experimenting with gpg, but I encountered problems as mentioned here:


I still haven't found a solution so I'm looking into possible alternatives. As shown in the above thread, someone recommended using eCryptfs or an encfs directory. Before I spend anymore time researching this stuff, has anyone tried using these before? Do they work well and do you think these would suit my needs?

The only other alternative I can think is just compressing the folder into a password protected rar file. Would this work well or would I be leaving my data vulnerable?

ALSO, I would a prefer a solution that would still allow me to backup this folder using rsync. I like to keep and up-to-date backup of my entire flash drive by syncing it to another flash drive using rsync.
