comment Error in Linux directory creation
chmod 777 is wrong in like 99.99% of scenarios. And of course it's wrong to host a site in a word writeable directory. Also, try getting rid of word "kindly" in technical questions, it makes a lot of people think "cheap India / send me codez" and ignore them.

comment How can I prioritise network bandwidth on a per application basis?
I would just rate limit the download speed of aptitude/apt instead of trying to play with its priority. Set it to a half of your max bandwidth to leave some for browsing. I've tried to state my reason for not playing with QoS in the comment to Catalin's answer.

Downloading generates incoming traffic. QoS can policy outgoing traffic, it can't control the amount of incoming data. For this to work, it is needed to control the router between the host and the internet.
