Default No access to public_html in user directories...

Hello all,

I followed the instructions on the perfect setup for SuSE Linux 10.1 up until the point where you install ISPConfig. My email, DNS, Apache and FTP work just fine. However, when I enter www.example.com/~username into my browser, I get an error that says:

Object not found!

The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 404

In the modules section, userdir is enabled.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Steve

You can do it with the Alias or AliasMatch directive in your Apache configuration. Have a look here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_alias.html

Something like this should do what you want:

Code:
AliasMatch ^/~([^/]+)(/(.*))? /path/to/$1/public_html/$3
where $1 is the username and $3 the requested file.

You can also do it like this: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod...r.html#userdir

OK, at the end of my http.conf file, I added:

UserDir public_html

UserDir enabled /home/*/public_html
UserDir disabled root

with no luck.

I also tried to add the same lined to my /etc/apache2/deault-server.conf also with no luck.

I though I followed the directions perfectly in the links you provided. But maybe I'm stupid. I'm a noobie at this and need a little handholding. This is my http.conf file...


#
# /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.2/> for detailed information about
# the directives.

# Based upon the default apache configuration file that ships with apache,
# which is based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob
# McCool. This file was knocked together by Peter Poeml <poeml+apache@suse.de>.

# If possible, avoid changes to this file. It does mainly contain Include
# statements and global settings that can/should be overridden in the
# configuration of your virtual hosts.


# Overview of include files, chronologically:
#

# |
# |-- uid.conf . . . . . . . . . . . . . . UserID/GroupID to run under

### Global Environment ################################################## ####
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests.

# run under this user/group id
Include /etc/apache2/uid.conf

# - how many server processes to start (server pool regulation)
# - usage of KeepAlive
Include /etc/apache2/server-tuning.conf

# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.
# If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a <VirtualHost>
# container, error messages relating to that virtual host will be
# logged here. If you *do* define an error logfile for a <VirtualHost>
# container, that host's errors will be logged there and not here.
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error_log

# generated from APACHE_MODULES in /etc/sysconfig/apache2
Include /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/loadmodule.conf

# IP addresses / ports to listen on
Include /etc/apache2/listen.conf

# predefined logging formats
Include /etc/apache2/mod_log_config.conf

# generated from global settings in /etc/sysconfig/apache2
Include /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/global.conf

# optional mod_status, mod_info
Include /etc/apache2/mod_status.conf
Include /etc/apache2/mod_info.conf

# optional cookie-based user tracking
# read the documentation before using it!!
Include /etc/apache2/mod_usertrack.conf

# configuration of server-generated directory listings

### 'Main' server configuration #############################################
#
# The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main'
# server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a
# <VirtualHost> definition. These values also provide defaults for
# any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file.
#
# All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers,
# in which case these default settings will be overridden for the
# virtual host being defined.
#
Include /etc/apache2/default-server.conf


# Another way to include your own files
#
# The file below is generated from /etc/sysconfig/apache2,
# include arbitrary files as named in APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES and
# APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_DIRS
Include /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/include.conf

### Virtual server configuration ############################################
#
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.2/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.
#
Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf

# SLT - 08-05-2006 (My attempt to get userdir working in public_html directories for users)
UserDir public_html

UserDir enabled /home/*/public_html
UserDir disabled root
# END SLT

# Note: instead of adding your own configuration here, consider
# adding it in your own file (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local)
# putting its name into APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES in
# /etc/sysconfig/apache2 -- this will make system updates
# easier

What's in that file?

What's the output of
Code:
ls -la /etc/apache2/vhosts.d
?

Yes, I restarted apache after every change I made.

Here is the output of /etc/apache2/vhosts.d:

venus:~ # ls -la /etc/apache2/vhosts.d
total 21
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 120 Aug 3 02:24 .
drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 1016 Aug 5 11:28 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9222 Jul 27 10:09 vhost-ssl.template
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4310 Jul 27 10:09 vhost.template
venus:~ #

Also the contents of /etc/apache2/deault-server.conf is:

#
# Global configuration that will be applicable for all virtual hosts, unless
# deleted here, or overriden elswhere.
#

DocumentRoot "/srv/www/htdocs"

#
# Configure the DocumentRoot
#
<Directory "/srv/www/htdocs">
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.2/mod/core.html#options
# for more information.
Options None
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
AllowOverride None
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

# Aliases: aliases can be added as needed (with no limit). The format is
# Alias fakename realname
#
# Note that if you include a trailing / on fakename then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL. So "/icons" isn't aliased in this
# example, only "/icons/". If the fakename is slash-terminated, then the
# realname must also be slash terminated, and if the fakename omits the
# trailing slash, the realname must also omit it.
#
# We include the /icons/ alias for FancyIndexed directory listings. If you
# do not use FancyIndexing, you may comment this out.
#
Alias /icons/ "/usr/share/apache2/icons/"

<Directory "/usr/share/apache2/icons">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
# documents in the realname directory are treated as applications and
# run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the client.
# The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias directives as to
# Alias.
#
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/srv/www/cgi-bin/"

# "/srv/www/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
#
<Directory "/srv/www/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -Includes
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

# Include all *.conf files from /etc/apache2/conf.d/.
#
# This is mostly meant as a place for other RPM packages to drop in their
# configuration snippet.
#
# You can comment this out here if you want those bits include only in a
# certain virtual host, but not here.
#
Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/*.conf

# The manual... if it is installed ('?' means it won't complain)
Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/apache2-manual?conf

Did you have a look here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod...r.html#userdir
and here?

Yes on both. But I guess there's something I just don't understand. I'm somewhat of a noobe here.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Steve

Absolutely. I've been trying it with my own account as well as another.

Default enabling user_dir

Still stuck? Try the folowing. There is a mod_userdir.conf file in the ../apache2 directory. It must be included somewhere. This file is included if you create a virtual host. Check out the vhosts.d/vhost.template. If you don't want a virtual host, simply add Include mod_userdir.conf in default-server.conf or in the plain httpd.conf. Or, as they advise, create httpd.conf.local put the Include there and edit /etc/sysconf/apache2 to activate your .local file.
