I logged in FEDORA Core 4 as a user. The Apache Server is up & running. So is the MySql Database. The Apache is configured to serve PHP Pages. But as a normal user i cannot access the /var/www/html directory. Also i do not want to work as ROOT.
There is somthing called "UserDirectory" option in httpd.conf. I tried to configure it but am not ablle to do so. I thing with this configured i can setup my site directory in HOME/$USER directory.
Please tell me how to go amout it. I tried to configure it by using various posts on the net, but could not find the solution.
You need to create a directory called public_html, give it permissions of 755 and put your files in there. To access your files from a web browser you would do something like http://localhost/~username/file.php. Also make sure that you have uncommented the userdir part in your httpd.conf.
Did you enable "userdir" in httpd.conf because it is disabled by default. You may need to put "public_html" as the default user directory in the userdir section of your httpd.conf. If all this is jargon, look for documentation regarding userdir on the apache website.
