Syntax: UserDir directory/filename Default:UserDir public_html Context: server config, virtual host Status: Base Module: mod_userdir Compatibility: All forms except the UserDir

of the enabled keyword, or disabled with a
list of usernames, is only available in Apache 1.3 and above.
The UserDir directive sets the real directory in a user's home directory
to use when a request for a document for a user is received.

The name of a directory or a pattern such as those shown below.
The keyword disabled. This turns off all
username-to-directory translations except those explicitly named with
the enabled keyword (see below).
The keyword disabled followed by a space-delimited
list of usernames. Usernames that appear in such a list will
never have directory translation performed, even if they
appear in an enabled clause.
The keyword enabled followed by a space-delimited list
of usernames. These usernames will have directory translation
performed even if a global disable is in effect, but not if they also
appear in a disabled clause.
If neither the enabled nor the disabled
keywords appear in the Userdir directive, the argument is
treated as a filename pattern, and is used to turn the name into a
directory specification. A request for
http://www.foo.com/~bob/one/two.html will be translated to:
Be careful when using this directive; for instance,

running Apache 1.3 or above, it is strongly recommended that your
configuration include a
"UserDir disabled root" declaration.
