10.3: Re-enable personal web pages with FileVault active
Authored by: sweetsdream on Oct 29, '03 11:20:30AM

Couldn't you change permissions on the 'Sites' folder only? I don't have filevault activated on my Home folder to test.

To access a directory/file you need at least execute access on all the parent directories.

So you could set the permissions for the Sites folder but you'd also need to set everyone=x for the user's home directory.

So that is:

chmod 711 ~
chmod 755 ~/Sites

worked for me!

You should probably add also:

chmod 755 ~/Public
chmod 733 ~/Public/Drop\ Box

but I'm not sure...
