Subject [users@httpd] DocumentRoot for Name-based Virtual Host
Date Wed, 14 Sep 2005 17:16:43 GMT
I've created a name-based virtual host in Apache 2.0.54 and am trying to 
get it to serve docs out of a directory under /home instead of the default 
directory for localhost: /var/www/html.

I put the following in httpd.conf:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
	DocumentRoot /home/amos/local-web/php
	ServerName php-web

then I added the following to the hosts file:	php-web

I created a file, welcome.php and put it in /home/amos/local-web/php but 
when I put http://php-web/welcome.php into the browser I get an Access 
forbidden! Error 403.

And now when I put localhost or or localhost/phpinfo.php into the 
browser they no longer work either.  I get the Access forbidden! Error 403 

Can someone tell me how to get this set up correctly?  I would like to have 
some different name-based virtual hosts that will serve documents out of 
different directories under /home/amos/...
