RE: [K12OSN] Apache userdir not working



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
    # permissions).
    #
    # 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:
    #
    UserDir public_html

</IfModule>

#
# 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 FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
    <Limit GET POST OPTIONS>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Limit>
    <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
    </LimitExcept>
</Directory>

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.
