Serve synced folders as website?

Recommended Posts


I was wondering if it is possible to use the folders that have been synced to my VPS, and are currently owned by the user rslsync (and in the group rslsync, and in the user rslsync's /home/rslsync/Resilio/ directory) , as a source for a self hosted photo app ( If so, I think I need to leave the user and group the same, but can I add the rslsync user to the www-data group to make the synced folders readable by the Apache webserver?

Thank you.

Well you have to make sure that the webserver can't access the hidden folder .sync that contains critical files for Sync to work properly.

But other than that this is a linux question. More like an apache server configuration question. You should be able to google that.
