Subject Re: [users@httpd] Per User Directory

Make sure that the whole tree down to the root can be searched by Apache.
If one of the parent directories doesn't have it's permissions set to allow
all users to read that directory, then Apache is denied access to finding
the files.
You only need chmod 755 for the public directory. This allows Apache clients
to read the public files. 777 gives everyone permission to write in that
directory and execute files.  Not a good idea.
