Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.15 says You do not have permission to view [this file]
Date Fri, 30 Jul 2010 17:31:15 GMT
Folks, 
 
I've been following your conversation about granting too much file access to
hackers. I utilize Norton Internet Security Intrusion Protection and to date
have had no problems with intruders. I wish to take the risk and set up a
symbolic link between htdocs in Program Files and a folder on my desktop...
using the System Administrator Prompt, so that I can easily modify files and
then save them within htdocs. After setting up the administrative-level
symbolic link, what directives in conf.ini for Apache 2.2.15 would I need to
change? Thanks. 
PS. I do take frequent full system image backups, so I'm willing to take a
risk, as I mentioned. Thanks again. 
 
Alan

Sander,
 
Pardon the direct reply, but I wanted to thank you personally for your
