Is the file /home/mark/public_html readable by the user or group that
Apache runs as? I set the home directories of my users up to have
permissions of 710 and membership in the group that Apache runs as
("wheel" on my main computer, "www-data" on every Debian installation I've
ever seen) and the public_html directory has permissions of 775.
This means that Apache can get into everybody's public_html directory, but
no users can.
