I'm just trying to make a public_html folder under my username on a Red Hat Linux Server (and it's all been a bit of a headache).
I made the folder and set the permissions to 755.
I wasn't sure how to deal with Apache (and admittedly finding the httpd.conf file was a nightmare, thanks to an unconventional directory layout), but now I've found it, I'm not sure what to do.
I've seen this question; Setting up individually accessible public_html for each user of a linux machine, but I don't understand the answer. How can I 'use mod_userdir' (I'm quite new to all of this).
I've looked at this;
Am I supposed to append something for the 'httpd..conf file?
I tried appending 'UserDir enabled username' to the top, and restart Apache, but still I can't find a page at;
What could the problem be?
Am I using mod_userdir incorrectly? (I don't even know HOW to use it)
