Topic: Web Server Configuration for virtual hosts (Ubuntu)  (Read 37706 times)

We want to set the webserver as owner of the conftool directory:

chown -R www-data /home/conftool/

The apache virtual host configuration has to be updated. Open up the configuration file of your virtual host, usually located in /etc/apache2/sites-available/domain-name. It should look something like this:

Code: [Select]
#NameVirtualHost *
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName www.domain.org
ServerAlias domain.org www.domain.org
ServerAdmin name@domain.org
DocumentRoot /var/www/path/to/site
<Directory /var/www/path/to/site >
Options FollowSymlinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order deny,allow
Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Add the following between </Directory> and </VirtualHost> (if "/conftool" is the URL and "/home/conftool/" is the directory, where ConfTool should be located).

Code: [Select]
Alias /conftool "/home/conftool/htdocs/"
<Directory "/home/conftool/htdocs">
Require all granted #Note: This allows access the /home/conftool directory on Ubuntu
Allow from all
Options Includes FollowSymLinks
DirectoryIndex index.php
php_value include_path ".:/home/conftool/etc"
AllowOverride All
</Directory>

PHP cURL is usually not installed with default PHP installations. Install it with:
sudo apt-get install php5-curl

Adapt the following settings in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
upload_max_filesize 11M
post_max_size 12M
memory_limit 32M
max_execution_time 900
session.gc_maxlifetime 18000

If you have problems downloading files with IE and SSL, please try the following settings:
php_value session.cache_limiter public
php_value session.cache_expire 5

Restart your webserver

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

and continue to testing the setup.

There is more detailed information about the installation of ConfTool on a server without virtual hosts available.
