    Hi guys,
    I disabled /~user option or actually Enable[ed] mod_userdir Protection but for sites with dedicated IP I can still see the I need to block it via apache, rewrite and robots. I am not sure if /user is an actually directory (other than the obvious one) but I added

    I added this to my robots:
    Disallow: /~*
    Disallow: /~site/
    Disallow: /site

    Any ideas? Ideally I'd make search engines and people see nothing or do a 301 redirect via apache rewrite. Since my most important sites have a dedicated IP and this can kill ranking, I'm worried.

    Thanks in advance
