I just set up a Fedora 5 machine and I want to play around with web development. I want to set up user directories so I can just type http://ipaddress/~username and get to their directory. So in my httpd.conf file I added: LoadModule userdir_module modules/mod_userdir.so Then a little further down I changed the file to the following: Code: <IfModule mod_userdir.c> # # UserDir is disabled by default since it can confirm the presence # of a username on the system (depending on home directory # permissions). # #UserDir disable # # To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html # directory, remove the "UserDir disable" line above, and uncomment # the following line instead: # UserDir public_html </IfModule> I set up a public_html folder under my main username and included an index.html file. The /home and /home/username and /home/username/public_html directories all have rwxr-xr-x permissions. My problem is whenever I use a URL of http://ipaddress/~username/ or http://ipaddress/~username/index.html I get the following error: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /~username/ on this server. I've tried everything I can think of....any suggestions cuz I'm totally stumped.
