This is a filesystem permissions error. Most likely, your home
directory is closed to the apache user. It's important to realise that
on unix systems, a user accessing a file needs not only read access to
the file, but execute access to all parent directories.

Try chmod o+x ~my_user

Or alternatively, change your home directory's group to a group that
contains the web server's user.
