I am running Macports apache2 on Mac OS X 10.5. Whenever I configure a virtual host in the default folder, it works, however when I configure the virtual host in my home directory I get a "403 Forbidden" error.
How do I configure a vhost in my home directory?
Here is the configuration that yields "403 Forbidden" when I access "devel.mysite.com": /opt/local/apache2/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf: DocumentRoot "/opt/local/apache2/htdocs" ServerName * #CustomLog "" common
<VirtualHost *:80> #DocumentRoot "/opt/local/apache2/htdocs/mysite" DocumentRoot "/Users/myuser/Sites/mysite" ServerName devel.mysite.com </VirtualHost>
The error message in
[Sat Apr 17 19:54:49 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] client denied by server configuration: /Users/myuser/Sites/mysite/
When I uncomment the line to make DocumentRoot in
/opt/local/apache2/htdocs/mysite, it works:
#CustomLog "" common
<VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot "/opt/local/apache2/htdocs/mysite" #DocumentRoot "/Users/myuser/Sites" ServerName devel.mysite.com </VirtualHost>
I get no errors or warnings when I start apache, and the only thing that is logged on startup is this (in

A few notes: * The permissions of /Home/myuser/Sites/mysite is 755, owned by myuser, group is staff * Everything else works as expected, until I move the ServerRoot of the vhost to the directory in my home
