Re: Apache DocumentRoot as symlink

Ok, it works with Virtuals, as everyone said. Could not get it to work
with the DocumentRoot for the entire server, no matter what I tried. Kept
getting "You don't have permissions to access / on this machine" or

I assumed (yes, I know what that makes me) the reason for not allowing
symlinks was a security issue. Now, I'm rethinking that. So, I guess I
have no arguments against it.

Thanks for all the help. My devel box is now doing exactly what I wanted
it to do.

The good thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.
