Ubuntu: Changed apache www folder


So I changed it from /var/www to /home/John/Dropbox/www and I also did chmod 755 /home/John/Dropbox/www but it still says You don't have permission to access / on this server.

I forgot how to do this, I guess I need to add the www-data usergroup to the folder...I don't remeber anymore, can you guys help me out.


I got it to work like this:

chgrp -R www-data /username/  chmod -R 2750 /username/  

And also add in apache2.conf

<Directory /home/JOgn/Dropbox/www>      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks      AllowOverride All      Require all granted  </Directory>
