    You can enable the apache2 default $HOME/public_html directory using

    Code:
    sudo a2enmod userdir
    and restarting the apache2 service - if you want to enable php scripts in $HOME/public_html there's an extra step involving your /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.conf file - open the file and follow the instructions:

    Code:
        # To re-enable php in user directories comment the following lines
        # (from <IfModule ...> to </IfModule>.) Do NOT set it to On as it
        # prevents .htaccess files from disabling it.
        <IfModule mod_userdir.c>
            <Directory /home/*/public_html>
                php_admin_value engine Off
            </Directory>
        </IfModule>

    Re: Setup local webserver

    Hmm since doing this:
    sudo a2enmod userdir
    I can no longer start apache?

    This is in the log file:

    Re: Setup local webserver

    are you sure the service really stopped?

    Code:
    service apache2 status
    did you look to see what's bound to port 80?

    Code:
    sudo netstat -nlp | grep :80

    liam@liam-ubuntu:~$ service apache2 status
    Apache2 is NOT running.


    liam@liam-ubuntu:~$ sudo netstat -nlp | grep :80
    [sudo] password for liam:
    then nothing appears

    Does that help?
