Subject [users@httpd] FollowSymLinks in 2.0
Date Thu, 25 Mar 2004 22:26:24 GMT

I had trouble with following symlinks in an upgrade from 1.3 to 2.0

It seems that there's been a change in policy: as far as I can tell Apache now 
only follows symlinks within the document tree, whereas before it followed 
them anywhere.

Is this correct?

(I didn't see it mentioned in the documentation. If there has been a change, I 
think it would be good to mention it in the definition of the FollowSymLinks 
option of the Options directive.)
