I just found out that some of IT gurus at my local community college are trying to set up apache within linux in order to allow users to telnet into their accounts on the internet. I am told that one user can telnet into the server, access his files but when he trys to open the html index within his file he gets an error(404). If he accesses the same file at the server he does not have a problem view the you have any answers,hope this is enough info

Are you using RedHat? Search your conf/httpd.conf file for this exact string: <Files ~>. If you find it, that's your problem -- that particular <Files> container is malformed. Delete it or replace it with <Files ~ "^\.ht"> and restart your server and things should work as expected.

This error appears to be caused by a problem with the version of linuxconf distributed with Redhat 6.x. It may reappear if you use linuxconf again

Hope this helps
