Hi I am looking to set up virtual hosts and I would like to put the files in each user's directory so I have each user and his sites held separately.

So for example john would have in /home/jean/public_html:

and tony in home/tony/public_html:

Can anyone suggest a good tutorial for setting this up with Apache? Thanks

What you want is called "virtual mass hosting", and Apache has documentation about it.
