CentOS 7: Enable Apache UserDIR

Administration, Info.Tech, Linux System Administration Add comments

I was used the old ways for enabling Apache UserDir but this time in CentOS 7, its different. So I’m kinda outdated. Even on restarting services are different. So here it is… 🙂

First enable usedir.conf of apache.

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/userdir.conf

Change from:

<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    #
    # UserDir is disabled by default since it can confirm the presence
    # of a username on the system (depending on home directory
    # permissions).
    #
    UserDir disabled
 
    #
    # To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html
    # directory, remove the "UserDir disabled" line above, and uncomment
    # the following line instead:
    #
    UserDir public_html
 
</IfModule>
 
<Directory /home/*/public_html>
        Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
         Require all granted
</Directory>

To:

<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    #
    # UserDir is disabled by default since it can confirm the presence
    # of a username on the system (depending on home directory
    # permissions).
    #
    #UserDir disabled
 
    #
    # To enable requests to /~user/ to serve the user's public_html
    # directory, remove the "UserDir disabled" line above, and uncomment
    # the following line instead:
    #
    UserDir public_html
 
</IfModule>
 
<Directory /home/*/public_html>
        Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
         Require all granted
</Directory>

Then restart apache…

systemctl restart httpd.service

Then create user’s public_html and its permissions (in my case, my user is prendstah):

mkdir /home/prendstah/public_html
chmod 711 /home/prendstah
chown prendstah:prendstah /home/prendstah/public_html
chmod 755 /home/prendstah/public_html

Then here’s the other new things, especially you are using SELinux

setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs true
chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /home/prendstah/public_html

That’s it.. That should give you a user directory a public access.
