-------------------
Module: mod_userdir
-------------------

.. contents:: Table of Contents

Description
===========

The userdir module provides a simple way to link user-based directories into the global namespace of the webserver.

Requests in the form ``/~user/page.html`` are rewritten to take the file ``page.html`` from the home directory of the user.
If ``userdir.path`` is set, the path will be appended to the home directory
building the classic mapping of: ::

  userdir.path = "public_html" 

  URL: http://www.example.org/~jan/index.html 
  Path: /home/jan/public_html/

To control which users should be able to use this feature you can set a list of usernames to include or exclude.

In case your mapping is independent of /etc/passwd you can use
``userdir.basepath``: ::

  userdir.path = "htdocs" 
  userdir.basepath = "/var/www/users/" 

  URL: http://www.example.org/~jan/index.html
  Path: /var/www/users/jan/htdocs/index.html

Options
=======

userdir.path (required option)
  usually it should be set to "public_html" to take ~/public_html/ as the document root

  Default: unset (mod_userdir disabled; set it to "" if you want the home directory to be the document root as it was the default before 1.4.19)
  Example: ::

    userdir.path = "public_html" 

userdir.exclude-user
  list of usernames which may not use this feature
Default: empty (all users may use it)
  Example: ::

    userdir.exclude-user = ( "root", "postmaster" )

userdir.include-user
  if set, only users from this list may use the feature

  Default: empty (all users may use it)

userdir.basepath
  if set, don't check /etc/passwd for homedir
