I want to sync my WWW folder with dropbox. How can I do that ?

I am using Ubuntu server 12.xx something. This for development purpose only.

I goggled it but I was unsuccessful

  1. If you want X folder in dropbox (~/Dropbox/X) to act as your www root folder, edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default and replace /var/www/ with /home/<username>/Dropbox/X. Make sure that files inside the X folder are readable by www-data user.

  2. If you want to add /var/www/ to your Dropbox, and keep it synced, create a symlink inside ~/Dropbox/ to point to /var/www

    cd ~/Dropbox
    ln -s /var/www www

    (You might wanna chown the www folder, so as to add files to it, without using root.
