need some help with apache


hi i am having trouble with my httpd (apache) i have read (redhat &fc5 bible)and did as it said in the book i can get the var/www/html/* to work but not public_html i uncommented UserDir "public_html"
and made all the file to home/user name 777 to public_html and i still get Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /~celnix/index.html on this server
where am i going wrong? i got it to work on windows 2003 webserver but -hell if i can get it to work on linux fc5 or redhat 4.3
had a few goes and changed a few things but still no go.

<Directory public_html>
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

<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 "enable all celnix"

#
# To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html
# directory, use this directive instead of "UserDir disable":
#
UserDir "public_html"
am i going at it the wrong way or is there more to this permission thing?

so, enable all celinux would be the directory.

both userdir definitions can be a conflict, and if you use both, they have to match.

hi , thank's for your comment.
i changed it to:
<Directory public_html>
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

<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 "enable all celnix"

#
# To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html
# directory, use this directive instead of "UserDir disable":
#
UserDir "public_html"
and sadly i still get the same:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /~celnix/index.html on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
tryed a few other things too:
<Directory /home/*/public_html>
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

<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 "enable all celnix"

#
# To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html
# directory, use this directive instead of "UserDir disable":
#
UserDir "public_html"
there must some thing else i am missing some where.

This may be a silly question, but you DID restart apache after your changes?



Cheers,

Red face there is nothing else?

there is nothing else than setting the files from root to home & users account to 777, i have an eggdrop bot and it can write to var/www/html , so i can't see why i get this
Forbidden

this should be a walk in the park.
maybe i will try turning off one of the modules
