It depends on what you're trying to do. 1) Typically, user websites go into their home directory like /home/userN, in a folder called "public_html". That way, the user website can be accessed at http://yourwebsite/~userN/. 2) However, you may want to put the user websites in another location, there is no problem, but remember to set the permissions correctly. Every user directory must be *owned* by that very user. For web usage, directories should have mode 755, and files 644. 3) If you want to have your user directories outside of the document root, you will have to setup an Alias for each user, or to define another virtual host. But that becomes close to solution 1 in that case. Cheers, -- Jean-Baptiste Quenot http://caraldi.com/jbq/
