At time of writing, I am still trying to configure my FBX so that it serves up a static site, rather than plinth, by default. As far as I can understand, it seems I need to go to System / General Configuration and set Webserver Home Page to Apache Default so that it serves up the content of freedombox.local/var/www/html. Then I either need to alter permissions for this folder from the CLI in order to replace the files over LAN; or - and I’m not 100% certain on this yet - I need to manually edit a config file so that the Apache server redirects incoming traffic to the appropriate User Websites folder.
I previously posted about this here:
Whereas I’m rather enjoying the process and am more than happy to learn, this level of fiddling around would be a significant barrier to use for any truly non-technical user. As per @NickA’s suggestion on the above thread, I would like to request that User Websites be selectable within the “Webserver Home Page” drop-down menu in the Configuration section. I’m not a coder but it seems like fairly low hanging fruit and a really worthwhile thing to include.
Thanks in advance,
