Have you read the Apache manual?

I don't see "BytesLog" as a directive in the Apache manual.

Would allow access to anything owned by "mine", not just webserver
files.  That can be a security problem.

That'd mangle .html file handling for the webserver.  (Presuming that
you have ordinary HTML files in the directory.)

If you also have SELinux on your machine, you'd need to ensure you've
got appropriate contexts set to run scripts from that location.
Likewise, you'd have to be sure that /home wasn't mounted noexec (which
is a security risk).
