http://serverfault.com – I managed to order a new VPS account from linode I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with 'LAMP Stack' StackScript. I notice the website directory is located in /srv/www/ and I thought this is quite strange. How do I check if /srv/www/ is secure? If I create a new directory or files in /srv/www/ (logged as root), what permission/user do I need to set? how to chmod/chown it? Right now it look like this (ls -la): drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2012-03-06 18:03 li1x8-2xx.members.linode.com root@li1x8-2xx:/srv/www# - drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2012-03-06 18:03 . drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 (HowTos)
