I've been having a trial by fire introduction to Linux (Mandrake 9.1) over the past few days. The good news is, it's starting to makes sense.
I'm currently trying to setup Apache, particularly public_html folders for each of the user profiles.
When I browse "http://host/~username/", the uploaded website loads up with no problems.
However, when I browse "http://host/~username" (ie no trailing slash), I get a 404 error.
I thought it might have something to do with the User Dir init, so i experimented by changing it from:
UserDir public_html public_html
UserDir public_html public_html/
When doing so, the index.html file loads, but all the links and images are broken (they attempt to load from http://host/
as opposed to http://host/username
Thanks in advance,
