[Discuss] apache problem

newly installed fc29 from scratch on my laptop -- apache
appears to be running ok.  chrome displays
localhost/welcome.htm just fine, but when i try
localhost/moylan/welcome.htm, where welcome.htm is in
/home/moylan/www, i get: "you don't have permission to
access localhost/moylan/welcome.htm on this server"

i have a similar setup (ostensibly identical, but obviously
not) on a different computer which works fine.  i checked
links and permissions on the laptop and see mothing amiss.

ls -l /var/www/html
  total 4.0K
  lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root  16 190103:1425 moylan -> /home/moylan/www/
  -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 128 190104:1307 welcome.htm
ls -ld /home
  drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4096 Jan  3 14:24 /home
ls -ld /home/moylan
  drwxr-xr-x. 24 moylan moylan 4096 Jan  4 14:21 /home/moylan
ls -ld /home/moylan/www
  drwxr-xr-x. 31 moylan moylan 4096 Nov 19 12:24 /home/moylan/www
ls -l  /home/moylan/www/welcome.htm
-rw-r--r-- 1 moylan moylan 133 190104:1325 /home/moylan/www/welcome.htm

no matter how many times i go through this, i always seem to
miss something.  where else should i be looking?
