Common problem with setting up home pages

  • Your home directory and public_html directory must have world execute permissions.
  • Your html documents must be given world read access
  • Any images enclosed should have a path relative to your public_html directory. The image load will fail if you specify a full path to the image
  • To point to another file in your public_html directory, use a hypertext link of the following form
  • Tail the /var/log/apache2/error_log (The tail command shows any new lines added to a file) while you try to access your page to see if there are any errors.
     > tail -f /var/log/apache2/error_log
