bash script to create virtual host vhost with apache httpd and CentOs 7
#!/bin/bash
# This script is used for create virtual hosts on CentOs.
# Created by alexnogard from http://alexnogard.com
# Improved by mattmezza from http://you.canmakethat.com
# Feel free to modify it
# PARAMETERS
#
# $usr - User
# $dir - directory of web files
# $servn - webserver address without www.
# $cname - cname of webserver
# EXAMPLE
# Web directory = /var/www/
# ServerName = domain.com
# cname = devel
#
#
# Check if you execute the script as root user
#
# This will check if directory already exist then create it with path : /directory/you/choose/domain.com
# Set the ownership, permissions and create a test index.php file
# Create a vhost file domain in your /etc/httpd/conf.d/ directory.
# And add the new vhost to the hosts.
#
#

@fredbradley @AsterAI you are welcome! Hope this saved a couple of minutes at least :-)

@diaspar actually I am on this page to adapt the script on Ubuntu :-) I will test it now, then I will create the Ubuntu version
