Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm trying to configure my apache webserver.
Does anyone know what I need to do to allow the httpd to view users directories?
(i.e. the contence of "http://192.168.0.38/~drkfir5/bits-n-bobs/" or in reality "/home/drkfir5/public_html/bits-n-bobs/")
Along the same lines, how about non-user directories? (i.e. "/scratch/"?)
Any help would be appriciated.
I RTFM but I'm not experianced at apache to understand half of it.
Hello, this is my first post at this forum, and I'm not an expert in Linux yet, but I hope I can help.
change group the home user directory to Apache (chgrp -Rv apache /home/user) and add execute to the public_html (chmod -v +x /home/user/public_html).
So did I, it works! :-)
swobodin, couldn't I just "chmod 777 /home/drkfir5" instead of changing the ownership of the directory? Because if I change ownership then I won't be able to write to the sector (unless it is changed to 777).
hw-tph, is there anywhere in particular I need to place the above code?
I like having a group to which I can add users to give them write access to the sitewide HTML directories (as opposed to their ~/public_html dirs). That way it's pretty easy to control who can do what.
