Subject [users@httpd] Apache + Symbolic Link NOT allowed
Date Wed, 05 Mar 2003 23:46:26 GMT
Here is the snippet of my HTTPD.CONF file:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache/htdocs"

<Directory />
    Options +FollowSymLinks +Indexes
    AllowOverride None
</Directory>

<Directory /home/hari>
    Options +FollowSymLinks +Indexes
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>


<Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs">
    Options +FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

UserDir public_html

<Directory /home/*/public_html>
    AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    Options +FollowSymLinks +Indexes
    <Limit GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Limit>
    <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
    </LimitExcept>
</Directory>

I have a UNIX SYSTEM USER 'hari' whose HOME dir is /home/hari.
I have also CREATED SYMBOLIC LINK of /home/hari in 
/usr/local/apache/htdocs/hari

What I need is that when I type www.hostname.com/hari/index.html, it should 
DISPLAY page from /home/hari/public_html/index.html


When I do this I get following message:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /hari/index.html on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an 
ErrorDocument to handle the request.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My ERROR_LOG file shows following:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Wed Mar  5 14:38:33 2003] [notice] Accept mutex: pthread (Default: pthread)
[Wed Mar  5 14:38:42 2003] [error] Symbolic link not allowed: 
/usr/local/apache/htdocs/hari/
[Wed Mar  5 14:38:42 2003] [error] File does not exist: 
/usr/local/apache/htdocs/error_doc.html
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried adding Alias /hari /home/hari/public_html but still NOT working!!!!

Any suggestions is welcome.

THANKS!
