FollowSymLinks + Joomla Multisites [SOLVED]
1 Attachment(s)
I have searched and searched on this forum and others, but not really found a way to get this working.
I used the Debian Squeeze Perfect Server tutorial here when I frist set it up.

I am running:
ISPConfig Version:
Debian Squeeze 2.6.32Server version: Apache/2.2.16 (Debian)
Server version: Apache/2.2.16 (Debian)
Server built: Sep 13 2012 02:54:14
PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze14 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Aug 6 2012 14:18:06)
Copyright (c) 1997-2009 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies
with Suhosin v0.9.32.1, Copyright (c) 2007-2010, by SektionEins GmbH

I am trying to use Joomla MultSites by jms2win, and it uses symbolic links to create links within the slave sites.

These people offer a file to aid in server setup. You can get here to duplicate. Or I'll attach to this post.

Can read their Faq about it here:

Which basically tells you if you can use the symbolic linking or not.

I have tried adding to my Apache Directives in ISPConfig->Websites->Options of the site:

<Directory /var/www/clients/client1/web5/web>
Options +FollowSymLinks +Includes
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

The only tick boxes enabled are SuEXEC and Own Error-Documents, on the Web Domain section of that page.

I have also tried using SuPHP/Mod-PHP/CGI/Fast-CGI, with mostly the same results of it not working fully/properly.
I would appreciate any insight or help in the right direction. :D

I did a bit more digging :D
