as already said: ther should be a DocumentRoot defined
simply allow access for your users to that directory.
I would guess that either you have to instances of apache on the machine, or the config file was messed up somehow (a restore maybe)?)
do an "updatedb" then a "locate httpd" and check the output to see if indeed you have more instances of apache. in which case, stop the one running and start the correct one.
if you only have one instance, then look for the config file and check for something like the below:
<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    UserDir public_html

# Control access to UserDir directories.  The following is an example
# for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only.
<Directory /home/*/public_html>
    AllowOverride All
    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
#        Order allow,deny
#        Allow from all
#    </Limit>
#        Order deny,allow
#        Deny from all
#    </LimitExcept>

and make sure it has correct configuration options

I am not sure I understand what you want.
something like:

on the same machine:

and site 1 and site 2 can use files from site?


and otehrsite from domain2 can use files from site of domain 1?
(the above is on same machine. if you want on different machines it's trickier but not impossible)

NO , sorry , what i need if a Howto do i simple web site .This web site its  to publicate big files in order to be abalible to download from the browser.

hm ... there are a lot of howto's out there. this is one: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Apache-Overview-HOWTO.html

but as I look at it, in this question you ask about a problem with user directories and stuff like that. is this latest request related to that or not? if yes, give some more information (you might not even need a howto, just to add a few lines in the config file)
simply point DocumentRoot in httpd.conf to the directory you want to use as your website (it should already be there)

We had a system wich alow user to publish in their own web site by a simple drag and drop inside of their own folder call ( WWW ) in the home directory of each user.But this folder its not accessible for the moment because the domain its not up .
What I need its add in the config of the apache with its running properly , another web site in order to provide them a momentanian  solution , but I don’t have experience in apache , its possible to add another web site in a easy way ?
