reproduce similar webserver as webhosting companies

0 votes

i have a web server running on fedora. This web server is only for applicatons testing purposes.
when i installed apache 2.4 it automatically create a group and an user apache.

All files/folder that are under /publi_html should have apache as user/group permissions.

This webserver runs in virtual machine and has its own IP address. now i need to reach this webserver from a windows workstation and edit/add/delete files and folders from the public_html directory.
i can not use my default user account as this account can just read files but can't edit/delete or add files/folder as standard permissions are 644 for files and 705 for folders.

i was thinking to perfom all actions (delte/move/edit...) in this public_html directory under apache account, but as apache account was installed automatically i do not have the password.

So what is the default password for apache user account ?

I guess there is better solution as on webhosting servers, you do not have apache user account, but a different one. so please, could you tell me how webhosting companies manage that (in order to reproduce a very similar way at home) ?

you must not login with a *service* account add your user to the apache group and give the files permission which allows the group apache read/write

What type of solutions can be considered for the OpenSource ? As per my understanding, if there are no many solutions are available in industry for same requirement then companies can make their product OpenSource if their product is not in demand or in other terms if they are not getting business from that.
Please share some thoughts.
