    Hi, I am finding that http://host.server.com/~username is not working on a few sites. These were setup the same as all the other sites and everything is showing the same in httpd.conf for the details.

    Any one else had this problem and/or know why ?

    Thanks,
    Jeff.

    Dumb thing

    Ok it appears that when the username is the same as the domain name, it fails to work.

    e.g domain is abc.com and username abc. Thats when server.name.com/~abc/ won't work.

    mmmm is there a work around, as I can't change usernames within WHM (FIXME: This functionality is currently not implemented)

    What files do I need to edit (httpd.conf etc) to get the username changed ?

    Thanks,
    Jeff.
