Subject Re: [users@httpd] Proper configuration of FollowSymLinks in 2.0.54
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 01:26:57 GMT
<html><div style='background-color:'><P>Hmm.&nbsp; Are you playing with
a precompiled binary or compiling from source?&nbsp; It's odd that +FollowSymLinks wouldn't
be working for you.&nbsp; Also, what OS are you running Apache under? and also is it running
under a non-prived user?</P>

<DIV>
<P>Using "Options All" under 2.054 does not give you everything explicitly.&nbsp;
You need to define +FollowSymLinks in order to be able to traverse SymLinks.&nbsp; Same
as if you want to explicitly allow CGI with +ExecCGI.&nbsp; That should work for you.</P>
