Webmin: Linux


Where would I upload files that will be displayed in public_html? I mean which folder do I enter? I've never used Webmin before.

Go into var then the www folder depending on your os and how it's setup it could just go into the www folder or http folder inside there.

Most times it's located in var/www though.

Hope this helps.

In the Webmin GUI, go to Servers -> Apache Webserver.
On the 'Existing Virtual Hosts' tab, look at the 'Document Root' for 'Default'.

Another way is to check your DocumentRoot setting in httpd.conf. Not sure what OS you have installed, but for Webmin on CentOS it is located at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Look in the file for something like:

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"

if everything is installed as default. /var/www/html is the directory you should upload to.
