Baloney. You can, and I have. My bet is he's screwed something up.
Sometimes Unix systems are set up with different ways to access a home
directory (/home, /users, whatever), and the one listed in <Directory>
needs to be, of course, the one Apache thinks its using; if you put
<Directory /home/akosut> and Apache has translated ~akosut to
/users/akosut, that section doesn't mean a thing.
