Under Fedora 8

Lampp the Bundle from ApacheFriends ( also known as Xampp ) is already configured and working fine in a few steps.

To enable users public_html directory you simply have to uncomment the line in the http.conf

# User home directories
Include etc/extra/httpd-userdir.conf

simply do so by doing this

gedit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf

Now make a directory inside your home folder named public_html and restart lampp.

try accessing the userdirectory by going to http://localhost/~username/ (Case sensitive by the way). If you get the 403 Forbiden people recommend you to do

chmod -R 755 /home/username/public_html/

but it doesn’t work still? Do chmod -R 755 /home/username/ and it should work!

Ps: yeah yeah i know not recommended but who care as long as it works! Also im the only user on my box computers are cheap nowadays get your own!
