Ubuntu: sudo adduser to set default directory



Question:

I used sudo adduser to add a new user for webmaster, so I set home directory to /var/www to let this user have rights to save file on the web server.

I just realized that I use webmaster account to log in the computer, Ubuntu created all directory for home like Documents, Download folders etc...

Since those folders Ubuntu created on the /var/www folder are public folder, I would like to know can I delete those folders or I have leave there for the folders system created.

Your help and information is great appreciated,

Regards,

Inung


Solution:1

If you're certain you don't need those folders then using sudo privileges you should be able to delete the folders as you would do any others.

sudo rm -r /var/www/Documents/  

If you're concerned about doing this then look into a .htaccess file to prevent other people from being able to view your folders.
