SOLVED - Symbolic Link not working.

Postby TomBrown » 02. September 2009 21:56

Evening all

I've installed XAMPP on an Ubuntu box and am trying to create a symbolic link with the code below which I have used before successfully.

mkdir ~/public_html

sudo ln -s ~/public_html /opt/lampp/htdocs/$USER

However. I get an error message.

Access forbidden! You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.

XAMPP starts alright. Permissions OK. I just can't work out what I'm doing differently.

Regards

Tom

Sorted now. My /home directory permissions were set too high.
