    I have root on a WHM server and have created a reseller account. I want to access the public_html folder for that reseller's customers by visiting

    The "Apache mod_userdir Tweak" is off, so the only UserDir command in /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf is at the top of the file:

    UserDir public_html
    I have followed the directions in the docs (here) to add a directive to the <VirtualHost> block for the reseller domain, on both ports 80 and 443. EasyApache uncomments the appropriate include lines when I run "/scripts/ensure_vhost_includes --all-users", so the file locations should be good.

    Inside /usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2/reseller/, I have one line:

    UserDir public_html
    That seems like it should do the trick, but when I visit, the browser displays the website for

    The access log for shows a 200 message ("OK") for the request, and the /~username/ is finding /index.php without any .htaccess magic.
