    FollowSymLinks + Joomla Multisites [SOLVED]

    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
