It's very likely that the Apache user does not have permissions to the 
newly created directories.  See:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/faq/error.html#error.permissiondenied

and

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/howto/public_html.html, which details 
what you probably should be using instead of the scheme you now have.

Here's a hint in case you don't want to use UserDir:  "man umask."  Be 
careful, though, this can have unintended consequences!
