I'm running an Ubuntu 12.04.3 Server and I'm trying to configure some virtual hosts.
But instead of using a directory within the var/www folder I used a new user I created's home folder so I can have an easy ftp log in for each of my sites and they are out the way of each other;
However; When I go to the domain I'm getting a;
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /index.html on this server.
I'm not really sure if it's something to do with the permissions changes in the guide where I did;
sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /home/newuser/live
sudo chmod -R 755 /home/newuser/live
The error to me suggests that what I've done has worked right - I just have some permission issues going wrong somewhere. Is it possible to do what I'm wanting to do?
I've read somewhere about using a symlink - is this a good idea or what would be the best solution?
I've not really got any experience with virtual hosts so all help is REALLY appreciated
