i'm using a default installation of RH7.0 and apache, and cannot access the user directories.  I modifed /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf so the userDir line says www, and modified the lines beneath it as follows:

UserDir www

#
# Control access to UserDir directories.  The following is an example
# for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only.
#
<Directory /home/*/www>
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

and i still cannot access the user directory from the net.  i get a forbidden message.  any ideas?

Are the permissions on the users directory set so that the apache user (normally nobody) has read access?
