Subject [users@httpd] 403 on symlinks
Date Mon, 15 Aug 2005 14:08:33 GMT
I have encountered a problem with Cricket/Apache.


I set everything up in cricket and it works, but now, when I access the
grapher.cgi file, I get a 403 forbidden and in the error log I get the


{Date} {Time} [Error] [Client] Symbolic link not allowed:


My config looks like this:


<VirtualHost *:80>


    DocumentRoot /www/


    ErrorLog logs/

    CustomLog logs/ common

    Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI

    <Directory "/www/cricket">

        Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI


    <Directory "/cricket/cricket">

        Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI

        Allow from all

        Order Allow,Deny




I do not know about how to fix this.  I have had it working before (On a
different PC), but I could not remember the config.


Please aid me as to how to make the directory /www/cricket symlink properly
in apache to /cricket/cricket.
