    System users and Apache


    I've seen this used a lot while browsing the web

    http://domain.com/~system_user_name

    I thought it was cute to say the least, and figured I'd query the neutral god Google to see if I could find any documentation of allowing system users to have web subdirectories.
    But I wasn't able to find anything, and I know at one point I had the documentation for it.

    I'm not new to *nix jargon, so there shouldn't be need to simplify a response. : )
    I appreciate your time.

    Good step in the right direction.
    Apparently, all it really took was making sure I had the module Userdir installed, then making a <IfModule> tag in the httpd.conf.

    If anyone else is interested:
    Apache module mod_userdir
