SOLVED, but still there's a bug, Apple.
Authored by: jrguitar21 on Nov 13, '08 05:18:39PM

my last note about how the mod_bonjour works to display the contents of the symlinked folders correctly on the MBP but not on the PowerBook was slightly flawed, but it got me thinking.... KenDRhyD above stated something similar that his problems were fixed as well by changing the staff folder perms, but that now his http://localhost/~username/ (~/Sites folder) doesnt work.

Well, actually its userdir_module, not mod_bonjour that provides that functionality. (At one point I had seen some output in the console that led me to believe mod_bonjour was creating those directories.) ANYWAY, I commented the line circa 111 in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf:


#LoadModule userdir_module libexec/apache2/mod_userdir.so

and circa line 465:


# User home directories
#Include /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-userdir.conf

Restarted apache, and now my symlinks work fine, but obviously no ~username/ directory listings now.
