When a new user registers, they normally can view their page through http://myhost.com/~theiraccountname/

However, somehow during the server move, this became disabled. How can I fix it?

Please help me if you know the answer.:eek:

Got it.

You cannot define the userdir in the virtual host section of httpd.conf for the domain which is to allow the shortcut.

<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
UserDir disabled
UserDir enabled promed
</IfModule>

Or from WHM you could simply go
Security>>Tweak Securitiy>>mod_userdir Tweak

This does allow users to circumvent your bw quotas (read steal bandwidth)

Yeah, I just need something to use until their domain starts resolving. I wonder If I could trigger a PHP program to remove the enable lines from their vhost after 72 hours...

I have a lot of domains that are registered and resolve almost immediately. I would not get all that worried about it. If they need access that bad, create a custom "hosts" file for them with a macro to install it
