This has been something that has been bothering me for ages, since FC3 in fact. I want to serve web pages from the user's home directories. With FC3, FC4 & FC5 I have always used Stanton Finley's Installation Notes (for FC5 http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...notes.html#Web
) to configure Apache, PHP, MySQL, FTP, etc... but I just don't get it.
There are two potential issues that I may have here:
- I have not set up the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file properly, although I have been careful to follow SF's notes.
- I do not understand how to implement the structure of the website?!
So this leads me to ask where I am going wrong... here is the relevant part of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
<Limit GET POST OPTIONS>
Allow from all
<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
But it could also be where the files are... I have one file in the shared folders here: /home/theolster/public_html/index.html and the folder /var/www/html is empty. When I direct firefox to 127.0.0.1 all I get is the default apache page, should I not see the index.html file?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as I'm probably just being dumb...
