I created a site on a testing server on my local Windows machine, and now I wish to port it to a remote server which is Linux. Both sites running under Apache.
To create symlinks on Windows, is stopped the server, and used
mklink /d source destination, and I was careful to use relative syntax - eg.
..\imgdir instead of C:\htdocs\imgdir. I don't know if that matters, but it made sense in my brain. Started the server, symlinks work fine.
However, when I upload the site with FTP, the symlinks are gone. The folders just disappear. Is this to be expected? Is there are solution?
