I am trying to authenticate users in ~user directory and subdirectories.
.htaccess works with htdocs sub-directories fine.

Unfortunately, have full access to files in ~user directory with
.htaccess present. It appears to be ignored by webserver.

When parent directory /home is set to "allowoverride authtype" in access.conf,
(I copied htdocs configuration which works and changed the directory path)
I get permission denied to access ~user even though ALL permissions in ~user 
and /home are set are to 755. Can access file directly through web browser by 
openning files.

Is this a problem with restricting access to the root directory /? 
Apache can't see /home even though it's configured in access.conf:

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None

<Directory "/home">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride AuthConfig
order allow,deny
allow from all
deny from none
