The userdir module ...

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 to the home directory
building the classic mapping of: ::
userdir.path = "public_html"
Path: /home/jan/public_html/
To control which users should be able to use this feature you can set a list of usernames to include or exclude.
In case your mapping is independent of /etc/passwd you can use
``userdir.basepath``: ::
userdir.path = "htdocs"
userdir.basepath = "/var/www/users/"
Path: /var/www/users/jan/htdocs/index.html
userdir.path (required option)
usually it should be set to "public_html" to take ~/public_html/ as the document root
Default: unset (mod_userdir disabled; set it to "" if you want the home directory to be the document root as it was the default before 1.4.19)
Example: ::
userdir.path = "public_html"
list of usernames which may not use this feature
Default: empty (all users may use it)
Example: ::
userdir.exclude-user = ( "root", "postmaster" )
if set, only users from this list may use the feature
Default: empty (all users may use it)
if set, don't check /etc/passwd for homedir
