Mathopd and reprepro

Although the method of serving an APT repository I discovered when setting up Debian on MacBook Pro 5.2 is sufficient, it is not very robust. Thus I began looking for something more useful for multiple repos­i­to­ries, and which is packaged for debian itself.

The search led me to a post that demon­strat­ed how to configure a private repository using reprepro. Although that gave me almost everything I needed, one final bit was required: permission adjustment. As I use Mathopd, the easiest way to prevent visitors from accessing the conf and db di­rec­to­ries was to restrict their per­mis­sions to that of my user alone.
