    Hi,
    It appears that somehow mod_userdir got disabled on our secure server, as attempting to access an account in the form of https://secure.intersurge.com/~username/ yields this error:

    ---
    Access Not Allowed from this Domain

    You are attempting to access a user dir from a domain that is not
    owned by the user. Please correct the domain that you are attempting
    to use to access this url.
    ---

    Does anyone have any advice as to how one would re-enable this? Thanks a lot for your help!

    in WHM

    click Tweak Security near the top at the left.

    Then Mod_Userdir

    then you should be able to just click the check box for that domain.

    Thanks for your reply - unfortunately, however, even after doing that the error is still occurring. Any other suggestions?

    I'm assuming you tried turning it off too?


    other than that - I can't think of anything else right away...I'm an advanced newbie :rolleyes:

    Thanks anyway for your help.. FYI, for anyone else that runs into this problem, I was able to locate a solution.

    Simply comment out these lines in httpd.conf:
    LoadModule bwprotect_module libexec/mod_bwprotect.so
    And
    AddModule mod_bwprotect.c

    mod_bwprotect is there to prevent people from stealing bandwidth from www.clientdomain.com/~otherclient/, but mod_userdir already takes care of this (and allows shared ssl certs)
