In file /Applications/xampp/etc/httpd.config
Uncomment this line which begins with Include like so:
# User home directories Include /Applications/xampp/etc/extra/httpd-userdir.conf
After the </Directory> for the box that begins with
"<Directory "/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs">"Add these lines:
# # UserDir: The name of the directory which is appended onto a user's home # directory if a ~user request is received. # <IfModule mod_userdir.so> UserDir Sites </IfModule>
In file /Applications/xampp/etc/extra/httpd-userdir.config the file should read
# Settings for user home directories # # Required module: mod_userdir
# # UserDir: The name of the directory that is appended onto a user's home # directory if a ~user request is received. Note that you must also set # the default access control for these directories, as in the example below. # UserDir Sites
# # Control access to UserDir directories. The following is an example # for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only. # <Directory /Users/*/Sites> AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit Indexes Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec <Limit GET POST OPTIONS> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Limit> <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS> Order deny,allow Deny from all </LimitExcept> </Directory>
