Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.3: "You don't have permission to access the requested directory" for public_html directories w/o index.html
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2007 21:17:00 GMT
Thanks tp those who responded.

<Directory /home/*/public_html> fixed my problem.

Please educate me.  Considering that <Directory /*/public_html> worked 
a) for the previous older release, and b) for directories with an 
ndex.html file:
   1) What about this version caused these symptoms?
    2) Exactly why did <Directory /home/*/public_html> fix the problem?  
Shouldn't <Directory /*/public_html> have fiailed before?

Again, thanks, in advance, for your guidance.

Charles

That's almost certainly not correct since "*" does not match "/". You 
probably want <Directory /home/*/public_html> or something similar. 
 
Also, always check the error_log for more details about the problem.
