Trying to use rsync to move /var/www/clients but symbolic links are not getting copied

    Using: rsync -avzh --delete-before --exclude-from 'exclude.txt' /source /dest

    According to docs the -a option should copy links but when I check my copied data I'm missing the symbolic links.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks!

    DOAH!!
    Please disregard. I totally forgot to add the trailing slash on the source and it was copying the folder into the destination. Didn't notice it because I had a lot of other similar names.
