I have configure the httpd.conf in Apache (httpd-2.2.17-1.fc14.x86_64) on FC14 to point to a symlink that exists in the users home directory by adding the following config to the httpd.conf.
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName site.test.co.uk DocumentRoot /var/www/html/site.test.co.uk <Directory "/home/userA/www/site.test.co.uk"> AllowOverride None Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
I have then used the command
ln -s /var/www/html/site.test.co.uk /home/user/www/site.test.co.uk
I have give the user userA access to the directory structure and ownership of the folders in the home dir (I was logged in as root). I have also given the group apache access to the group userA and restarted httpd.
This issue I have is that when I view the site site.test.co.uk I get a 403 Forbidden error?
I can cd to the directory via the symlink and that works fine but apache does not seem to be able to access the symlink.
Thanks in advance.
