Quick apache question


I've read all the related documentation and searched this site but I still haven't figured out how to make one thing work....

I've got it setup to display a directory listing for directories that do not have an index.html .php .htm yada yada yada. It does correctly display the directory listing for directories in the DocumentRoot folder.

However, I enabled UserDirectory so each user has a public_html directory in their home that can be accessed via the web. But the directory listing is not working. From all the reading I've done, I haven't been able to find a straight answer so does anybody know what to edit in the .conf or any other files?

It's not a big deal but it's something for me to do to learn linux and avoid homework at the same time. Thanks for help in previous posts.
Also, I didn't know exactly which forum to post this under so don't flame me too much if it's in the wrong one.

Well, I think that any of the 90,000 members would need a little bit more info...

1- Do you have a firewall running?
2- What are the errror messages in the log files when you try to access these directories? Look at both the error and acces logs!!!
3- When you say you have it "set-up", what exactly do you think you've done to "set-it-up"? Enabled, disabled what?
4- You've tried to access these directories from where? Your box, from another box, via a proxy...????

...just for starters....

Try doing something like the following in your httpd.conf:
<Directory /home/*
Options Indexes
</Directory>

Or put a .htaccess in their public_html directory. You can get more info at the Apache website.
