Subject [users@httpd] Forbidden access to userdir
Date Sat, 08 Sep 2007 04:24:58 GMT

I installed the latest apache version (2.2.6).  I used
the default httpd.conf file except for the userdir
directory which is include the file

I can access the "main website" from
/[..]/apache/htdocs but when I put the
http://[..]/~my_user  I received on my browser : 


You don't have permission to access /~my_user on this

On the access_log I can see the following message :
[...] "GET /~my_user HTTP/1.1" 403 207

And the error_log :
[...] (13)Permission denied: access to /~my_user

my index.html has 777 root.root as privilege and the
"." has 777 my_user.my_user of privilege

I installed apache from source using the following
command :
./configure  \
--with-expat=builtin  \
--prefix=/usr/local/apache \
--enable-shared=max \
--enable-module=rewrite \
--enable-module=so \
make ; make install

Everything seems good for me, so I'm looking for some
help or advice to resolve this issue.  

Thank you a lot
