The userdir module provides a simple way to link user-based directories into the global namespace of the webserver.
Requests in the form ``/~user/page.html`` are rewritten to take the file ``page.html`` from the home-directory of the user.
If userdir.path is set, the path will be appended at the home-directory.
If ``userdir.path`` is set, the path will be appended at the home-directory
building the classic mapping of: ::
userdir.path = "public_html"
URL: http://www.example.org/~jan/index.html
Path: /home/jan/public_html/
To control which users should be able to use this feature you can set a include- or a exclude list for username.
In case you mapping is independent of /etc/passwd you can use
``userdir.basepath``: ::
userdir.path = "htdocs"
userdir.basepath = "/var/www/users/"
URL: http://www.example.org/~jan/index.html
Path: /var/www/users/jan/htdocs/index.html
