apache config.


Howdy,
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.

P.S.
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! :-)

You also need to make sure Apache is aware of the user's HTML directories:
Code:
<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    UserDir public_html
</IfModule>
...and
Code:
<Directory /home/*/public_html>
    AllowOverride All
    Options MultiViews -Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
Want personal cgi directories as well?
Code:
<Directory /home/*/public_html/cgi-bin>
     Options +ExecCGI -Includes -Indexes
     SetHandler cgi-script
</Directory>

Also make sure that the files themselves are world readable.

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.

try vigrp and add the group, making sure to use a diffrent group number.
If you did 'man -k group' I'm sure it would give you a help page on how to do it.

For the apache config section, it should already be written in your httpd.conf file, just commented out. Do a quick search for "public_html", and you'll find it.

OK. It's time to revist this problem. Only different.
How can I set it up so that people can view the contence of my home directory?

Nvm. I figured it out.
