How to use symbolic links?


Recommended Posts



I tried creating symbolic links in the document root, e.g.:




which links to d:\overflow in the hope that Apache would be able to serve files from the symbolic link. Unfortunately, the overflow directory isn't visible on my web browser. I need to do this because the disk on which Uniform Server was installed has limited space. Not sure how to get this working. Please help...

Thanks for the tips guys! Managed to get it working... Had to get a piece of software to create symbolic links in XP and then added FollowSymLinks to the <directory> sections. It still didn't work and it took me awhile to figure out that the .htaccess was set up to override the httpd.conf file. So I put in another "options FollowSymLinks" there and it worked! -_- Thanks again! And also for the great software package.
