Subject [users@httpd] Follow symbolic links: report symbolic link names vs. real names
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2006 12:33:01 GMT
I would like to configure Apache 2.0.52 on Linux to follow symbolic 
links to directories.

The directory names I am using are defined as symbolic links on the file 
system. The "FollowSymLinks" parameter is configured in httpd.conf.

According to /var/log/httpd/error_log the symbolic links are followed 
correctly, but the log file shows the real directory names not the 
symbolic ones (which is why my CGI script fails to run).

How do I configure Apache to follow symbolic links to directories 
without internally using/reporting the file system's real directory names?

Thanks, David
