I have successfully installed XAMPP on my RHEL 4 box - it's a wonderful idea, well implemented and I am really impressed with it.
I want to keep my development files in my home directory so I have created /home/alan/public_html and placed a test index file in there.
Whenever I access http://localhost/~alan/ I get the following message:-
You don't have permission to access /~alan/ on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0.54 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.54 OpenSSL/0.9.7g PHP/5.0.4 DAV/2 mod_perl/1.999.21 Perl/v5.8.6 Server at localhost Port 80"
Permissions on this folder are 777.
What else should I check?
