I´m trying to setup a simple Web server and my problem is this. When someone is trying to access his home directory through the web he is refused. "You have no access to ..."
And when I try to make a symblic linc I am forbidden as well. There´s no problem to access the .../htdocs/ - directory.
Best regards

In you srm.conf (in RedHat distribution placed at /etc/httpd/conf) add following string:

UserDir html

in the user's home directory create directory named html, and place you web files there.

killall -HUP httpd

PS: you can use any other name instead of html.

Thank you. What a difference. I noticed that if I just wrote UserDir . (dot) I could place my html-docs in the root of my home directory.

Once again thank you
