This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

The fact that you don't get an answer when you ask a question in the right place is not a good reason for asking the same question in the wrong place. This belongs on serverfault. – Don Roby Jan 24 '11 at 17:21
@Don - not disagreeing. Please kick it to SF / close this... but can you help with an answer? – siliconpi Jan 24 '11 at 17:29
@matt74tm - I can't, as I'm not a moderator. But if a moderator does, or enough people the right close vote, it'll happen. – Don Roby Jan 24 '11 at 17:31

Besides it's wrong or not to publish this question, I'm not able to do anything more than answer. Just as a pointer, you must read Apache (or your http server) manual. In case of apache there you can define virtual hosts where each user can access, if they must share the public_html, then you can create symbolic links to the same dir.

Google it: "virtual hosts " and read about it.

Good luck!
