apache UserDir public_html problem


Hi

This is a simple problem which i am sure will have a simple answer.

I am tring to set a user directory with web content on my linux web server. When i enter the url i get:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /~ashley on this server.

Under the httpd.conf file i have the line:
UserDir public_html

The permissions on the index.html file are world readable.
I can access web files within /var/www/html no probs too.

Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

Ashley

1. Does directory 'ashley' have 755 on it?
2. Did user ashley create the 'public_html' folder?
3. in httpd.conf, userdir_module is loaded correct?

>>1. Does directory 'ashley' have 755 on it?

Yes, my user directory has 755 permissions on it (although in apache documentation it is OK to use 711)

>>2. Did user ashley create the 'public_html' folder?

Yes, I've the public_html folder with 755 permissions

>>3. in httpd.conf, userdir_module is loaded correct?

I've the following line in httpd.conf
LoadModule userdir_module modules/mod_userdir.so

Also I've

<IfModule mod_userdir.c>

UserDir public_html

</IfModule>

in httpd.conf

Everything seems normal but I couldn't figure out why it is not working...

Thanks.

You are using the url: "http://<your domain here>/~ashley/". Have you tried: "http://<your domain here>/users/~ashley/"?

Also for the public_html folder, I recall that the apache doc or some doc said that the user must create it and not root. Make sure you didn't create it with root. Also, have you placed an index.html in the user's folder and tried accessing using "http://<your domain>/~ashley/index.html"? Did that come back with anything? Other than that, your setup looks correct and looks the same as the setup I have running on my machine.
