Once it is done, create a new directory and extract the downloaded file to the newly created directory.
root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# mkdir e107 root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# unzip e107_2.0_full.zip -d e107/ Archive: e107_2.0_full.zip inflating: e107/README.md inflating: e107/banner.php inflating: e107/class2.php inflating: e107/comment.php … … … inflating: e107/upload.php inflating: e107/user.php inflating: e107/userposts.php inflating: e107/usersettings.php
Move the e107 directory to /var/www/html/ and set proper ownership for the directory as follows.
root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# mv e107/ /var/www/html/e107/ root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/e107/
Once the ownership is set, create a new virtual host directive in Apache. Use the following command for the same purpose.
root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# touch /etc/apache2/sites-available/e107.conf root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/e107.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/e107.conf root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/e107.conf
Configure the file as follows.
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org DocumentRoot /var/www/html/e107/ ServerName linuxhelp ServerAlias www.your-domain.com <Directory /var/www/html/e107/> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/your-domain.com-error_log CustomLog /var/log/apache2/your-domain.com-access_log common </VirtualHost>
Once the file is configured, change the hostname in the server name option. Save the file and exit.
Now restart the Apache web server to give effect to the configuration. Use the following command for the same purpose.
root@linuxhelp:/home/user1# service apache2 restart
