Hi Darrel

Sorry to jump in here, but something else you can try is to create a
directory in your home directory called "public_html", so
"/home/darrel/public_html" and then enable the apache userdir module
with the command:
sudo a2enmod userdir.

Then you can create your site(s) in there and view them by going to

You then do not need to worry about the permissions and copy files.
