Hi..all...
for all of us who are using apache...(as a production level server or just a test server or using it in intranet)..

You can make apache to access user directories /home/hemant(for example) and webpages available there accessible to all...so in this way every user can have a website of his own....sounds cool...here goes method to accomplish this....
1.edit file /etc/conf/httpd.conf
and you will see a variable
UserDir=~/public_html
and next line enables this variable...uncomment both lines and make sure user directories are enabled..
2.now those users who wanted to have webpages of their own can create a directory ~/public_html and make it readable to all..
$ chmod 755 public_html

PS:i am posting this tip from a windows machine so i am not sure about location of file httpd.conf .

First..of all.to access the user dirctory it will be

http://localhost/~hemant(provided index.html file exists in the ~/public_html directory).

Now about the second question..file handling has to be handled...by php(or cgi).
you can easily write the php script...which will deny upload of certain files..

Or else..as a quick shot..you can use javascript...simply check the name of the file..that is being uploaded..and check for it's extension..and generate a warning and don't allow user to post that file.

If you want i can post the script...
