Thanks for all the advise. I realize that 777 is a really bad idea but
I'm at home behind a firewall and all that stuff. Here is a more
complete stanza from my httpd.conf
# UserDir is disabled by default since it can confirm the presence
# of a username on the system (depending on home directory
# UserDir disable
# To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html
# directory, remove the "UserDir disable" line above, and uncomment
# the following line instead:
# Control access to UserDir directories. The following is an example
# for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only.
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
<Limit GET POST OPTIONS>
Allow from all
<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
I'm not sure how to "show directory contents". I am sure permissions
are way overkill. Its just something simple I'm sure but its eluding
me. Pretty much par for the course today.
