Subject [users@httpd] Help needed to set correct permissions
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2010 12:38:27 GMT
I'm running a default httpd install from the yum repository (Fedora
12). The user and group that starts the httpd process is "apache"
(default configuration in httpd.conf).

The default page is located in /var/www/html/

I have a few users on this box for whom I need to setup virtual hosts
and their httpd root directory should be in their home directories,
i.e. /home/somebody/www

This is an example configuration for a virtual host

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /home/somebody/www/

<Files ~ "^\.ht">
<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    allow from all


When I try to access any page on the virtual host, it says I do not
have permission. error_logs show the following

[Wed Feb 03 23:55:51 2010] [error] [client] (13)Permission
denied: access to /favicon.ico denied

I changed the group of /home/sombody to "apache" by exectuing chgrp -R
apache /home/somebody. What am I missing here?
