Hi all,

I am in the process of migrating to the FastCGI from SuPHP.
When I am using SuPHP my clients can access their www directory by using:

http://servername.com/~username/

However, in several topics here I have read that FastCGI in SuEXEC mode doesn't allow such a behaviour..?

Is there any way I can enable it for FastCGI?

Hello :)

UserDir requests will not function correctly with FCGI (suEXEC enabled). The best workaround would be to skip using Apache mod_userdir and instead edit the hosts file on your personal machine to access the domain name over the IP address of the server you want to view it on.

Thank you.
