UserDir option question

UserDir option question

Post by Paul Schall » Fri, 06 Oct 1995 04:00:00



I am sort of confused on the UserDir option.  I know that it
allows my users to host their own web pages from their
dir.  However, my users directories are in /export/home/username.

So how do I map it so that a users home page can be accessed?
I tried placing /export/home next to the UserDir option, but when
I went o retrieve a page from my dir, http://www.domain.com/~username/doc.html,
I get a 404 error.

Also, the web server is on a different disk than the users dir. So I don't
know if that matters or not.  The server is at /usr0/local/etc/httpd and the
users are at /export/home/username.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help.

1. Apache UserDir option

How would one go about setting UserDir to do something like:

~pgregg -> /web/p/g/pgregg
~foo -> /web/f/o/foo

It doesn't look as if apache provides for such a construct. ( We use it
because users Web files are NFS mounted on the shell acct machines from the
web server)

I'm current;y manually hacking each mod_userdir.c to provide this but
a config option would be very useful ;)
