I'm working on a project with a directory structure that relies on symlinks. I would like to package this project in such a way that users with no command line access or knowledge could still upload the project to their servers. At the moment, this is not possible, whenever I attempt to upload the symlinks, they are converted into the contents they link to.
Is it actually possible to upload symlinks to a server? If yes, what would be the procedure? If not can you recommend another approach?
This project wouldn't work without symlinks as I need the same information in various places and copying the content is not an option.
