    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

    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>.

    ### '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

    ### 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 :)

    Did you restart Apache?

    What's in that file?

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

    sthompson New Member

    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 .

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

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

    Any other suggestions?

    Does username exist in /etc/passwd?

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

    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.

    Thanks, I'll give that a try in a little while and let you know how I made out. I appreciate the advice.

    sthompson New Member

    Well, I tried every thing you suggested and still no luck. I've just about had it. I even reloaded my server without doing the step for apache in the perfect setup.

    I had this working once serverl months ago but can't find the right solution. I can't give up because I need this but I HAVE HAD IT! I just don't know what to do next. There are too many Includes in SuSE Linux http.conf file that gets me really confused. Not to mention the fact that I'm a noobie at this.

    Any more help would ne appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    I know SuSE splits up the Apache configuration in lots of files... :(
    I suggest you take a look at configuration and write down which file is included where and try to find out how everything's related to each other. I don't have a SuSE system running right now (guess why ;) ) so I cannot be of much help here...
     
  14. sthompson

    sthompson New Member

    Thanks Falko. I'll do just that. I appreciate all of the help you have given to me in the past. I use SuSE for it's simplicity. What I like about it is the fact that it has a Yast that lets me configure everything. Setting up DNS and the like are a breeze using Yast. If you know of any other distributions that have that capability please let me know.

    Thank you in kind once again.

    Steve

    YaST is one of the things why I don't like SuSE... :D The other distros don't come with such a tool (at least the ones I know).

    no userdir

    I had the same issue goign on as well but what I found it was ---

    SELinux -- I went inot the GUI disabled it and reboot and all was working...

    Have a great day hope this helps

    Thanks, but SuSE Linux doesn't have SELinux.

    SuSE has AppArmor instead of SELinux, it is very similar and might lead to the same problems.
     
  19. sthompson

    sthompson New Member

    AppArmor is off and the firewall is off. Believe me, it's the first thing I checked.

    Falko,

    What Distro do you use for your Desktop/Workstation and what Distro do you use for your servers? Also, is there a Distro that you would recommend to someone like me who's only been using SuSE linux on a daily basis for the last 4 months?

    I tried Ubuntu but I wasn't to enthused about it. I also have downloaded, but not installed, Centos. Any recommendations for me?

    Thanks,

    Steve
