Was playing with permissions on my home dirs last night and changed
everything to chmod 700 had some problem with users looking at and
copying other users webpages.  I have a directory in each users home dir
named www where they keep there web files ie /usr/home/username/www  so
i guess when i changed everything to 700 apache was unable to use these

Now i have tried the best i can to change everything back set  to chmod
to 655  and even tried moving a site to /usr/local/www/username in hope
that apache could read it there but no luck what has happened please help.

Wait now things have started to work, for the web site that i moved to
/usr/local/www/username. There seems to be some lag  after i make
changes to the permissions and restart apache is this possible.

I have a real mess on my hands now guess i will have to play with
permissions and modes now to get all the sites backup.  How do i set up
home directories that are secure for each user ie other users on the
system cannot read them but apache can.  Should i move all web pages to
the /usr/local/www dir.  Also is there some way to automate this so that
when i create a new user or modify a file things will work correctly.
Have been using UNIX for many years finally got up the courage to play
with modes and perms.  Guess i  shot myself in the foot like i have been
warned about by many people and docs.



You don't have permission to access / on this server.
