I know there are a few threads about this, but I still couldn't get it to work.
I have installed WebMO following the instructions as a user "webmo" on Mint (Ubuntu) 14.04. I think all the permissions are correct. I get the "Forbidden" error, no matter if on the same machine or remotely. Even when running Firefox as webmo user. If I point a browser just at the host address, I get the default Ubuntu page, so apache is working. Attached are my apache2/apache2.conf (stripped of comments, to keep it shorter) and /etc/apache2/mods-available/userdir.conf. Anything obvious?
Here are the file permissions in the directory whee it's installed:
# ls -al
drwxr-xr-x 4 webmo webmo 4096 Oct 13 17:30 .
drwx--x--x 9 webmo webmo 4096 Oct 14 12:58 ..
drwxr-xr-x 3 webmo webmo 4096 Oct 13 17:31 cgi-bin
drwxr-xr-x 6 webmo webmo 4096 Oct 13 17:32 webmo

Thanks. The changes described in those instructions didn't help, but it was indeed the moduserdir settings. I found the solution on stackexchange:
