Subject Re: VitualHost + UserDir prob (solution)
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2002 15:41:29 GMT
I appreciate the replies.  Sorry about the cloak and dagger, Joshua.

To summarize, the basic problem was that the exact same userdir
directive would not work within the virtual host, but worked fine in the
main host.

I wasn't able to use Lewis' suggestions because my directory structure
is different, but they did cause me to try something that revealed the
solution.

Solution: When wanting UserDir functionality in *one virtual host only*,
in the main server config, enter "UserDir disabled".  This will do two
things:
1) This prevents the main and all other virtual hosts from hosting the
userdirs
2) For some VERY odd reason it causes the path in the virtual host that
*does* have the "UserDir /net/www/*/www" directive to work as
documented.

To verify, I went back and double checked.  Remarking out "UserDir
disabled" in the main configuration causes the virtual host with the
"UserDir /net/www/*/www" directive to issue a 302 error with a circular
reference ("here" calls itself).  Removing the remark to re-issue the
"UserDir disabled" directive solves the 302 problem and allows the
system to work as documented and expected.

Thanks for the help guys.  :)

-Kyle
