    At the moment i´m migrating sites to new hardware. copying files and making stuff work. I use geeklog in many cases.

    I´ve made geeklog work by replacing the /local/www/web#/web dir to a symlink pointing to /local/www/web#/geeklog/public_html Normaly that works. but now on one particular site i get a forbidden error and this is in my log:

    [Wed Jan 10 22:34:00 2007] [error] [client] Symbolic link not allowed: /local/www/web#/web

    It´s a mystery to my why one site works while another does not.

    Does this website has a .htaccess file or any additional settings in the apache directives field? Or does all other sites have some additional settings in .htaccess or apache directives field?

    Do you have in either apache2.conf or a .htaccess or the ISPConfig web directives specified
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    for this directory?

    I'll try it. However i did nothing of this kind to other dirs or files for the sites that do work. It's also a bit strange that the error is about the document root (the /local/www/web#/web dir itself)

    I would expect that the directives would be active for only the /local/www/web#/web subdirs. But that maybe false...

    Thanks for looking into this... I think the problem is with the website i'm trying to setup.

    I tried to link to a new dir with just one html file, that works perfectly. Sooooo the problem is nog ispconfig related.

    Again thanks for your time.
