RE: Access via Browser

Parent Message
Thank you for that information. So I added this directive:

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

to my conf file in the root httpd directory and rebooted (I am using Cobalt Raq 4).

But it doesn't seem to have made a difference. Is this because the server will only follow symbolic links  where the target file or directory is in the top level of the 'sites' directory?

Within sites I have the individual user web directories i.e.www.site1.com and www.site2.com etc. Here are my instructions

cd /home/sites/www.site2.com/web
ln -s /home/sites/www.site1.com/web/images  images

successfully creates the 'alias' images directory in site2... but If I navigate to it vai a browser, permission is denied???
