Getting Dropbox, LAMP and Ubuntu Linux to play nicely isn’t as difficult as apache error.log’s cryptic messages lead you to believe. In fact, it’s quite simple!
Obviously this is horrible. Don’t do this. I don’t know why I thought this was a good idea. This post shouldn’t exist. Don’t do any of this k.
Assuming you’ve already installed LAMP, it’s a three-step process from a fresh install:
- Symlink /var/www/drbx to ~/Dropbox/dev
ln -s /var/www/drbx ~/Dropbox/dev
- Set permissions on destination folder
chmod +x ~/Dropbox/dev
- Ensure apache can traverse the path
chmod +x / chmod +x /home chmod +x /home/rich chmod +x /home/rich/Dropbox
Now visit http://localhost/drbx to see your work!
