In order for a website to be accessible to visitors, it must be published to the correct directory. Upload your files via SFTP and place them in
/var/www/virtual/<username>/html. Access the files via your domain.
We strongly suggest to use different accounts for different projects due to security reasons. If one of the DocumentRoots gets compromised (e.g. because of a CVE), all other files within all other DocumentRoots can be compromised as well.
You can create folders (and symlinks) in the form of
/var/www/virtual/<username>/<domain>. Make sure your domain is setup and configured correctly. To use
RewriteRules, you have to create a .htaccess file within the DocumentRoot with the following content:
DOCUMENT_ROOT variable set by Apache always points to the one and only DocumentRoot
/var/www/virtual/<username>/html so you will will get a misleading value. There is no way to change that behaviour.
Do not delete
/var/www/virtual/<username>/html. If this folder doesn’t exist, the RewriteRules implementing the additional DocumentRoots don’t work, so all your domains will be unaccessable.
Since the webserver runs with a different user, you need to make sure your files have the right permissions. The folder
/var/www/virtual/<username>/html and all additional DocumentRoots need to have mode
0755, the files within
Since the folder
/var/www/virtual/<username> has mode
0750, other users on the same server can’t access your files.
