Subject Re: help with user directories and virtual hosts
Date Sun, 27 Jan 2002 21:30:41 GMT

lines in httpd.conf (global section) which control access to user
directories ( ~/username/) and I tried adding a line to one virtual host as

UserDir /home/joe/shmoe-www/public_html

With the hope that I could just type:

and get back a plain text list of files in that directory, but it didn't work.
