Subject RE: [users@httpd] Proper configuration of FollowSymLinks in 2.0.54
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2005 22:09:56 GMT
<html><div style='background-color:'><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>

<META content="Microsoft SafeHTML" name=Generator>What is the proper way to configure
FollowSymLinks in 2.0.54?<BR><BR>I'm having a problem getting this to work at
all - after reading the manual, searching for examples, it seems fairly straightforward; however,
every combination I try fails with: Symbolic link not allowed.<BR><BR>I am suspicious
that I've hit a bug, and actually filed a <A href="">bug
report</A>, to which detractors insist there is no bug.<BR><BR>I tried a
stripped-down httpd.conf that has basically this:<BR><BR>DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/data:<BR><BR>
<BLOCKQUOTE>&lt;Directory /&gt;<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Options
All<BR>&lt;/Directory&gt;<BR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>The symlink
is in the DocumentRoot as:<BR><BR>files -&gt; /usr/local/shares/directory<BR><BR>I
tried specifying the directory in different ways:<BR><BR>
<BLOCKQUOTE>&lt;Direcotory "/files"&gt; <BR><BR>&lt;Direcotry
"/usr/local/www/data/files"&gt;<BR><BR>&lt;Directory "/usr/local/shares/files"&gt;<BR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>the
last option isn't valid, but I tried it anyway.<BR><BR>This does *not* work, and
I'm completely puzzled.<BR><BR>What's more, the same configuration works fine
under 1.3.x, using just a Directory pointer to /symlinkname.<BR><BR>I'd appreciate
some clarification/examples of how to do this properly under 2.0.54.<BR><BR><BR>Thanks.<BR><BR><BR><BR><BR><BR><BR></FONT></BLOCKQUOTE></div><br
