(I hope this isn't a FAQ...)
We're running NCSA httpd 1.4.2 on Solaris 2.4. We just installed it
The user home directories are on the /export/home filesystem - ie
/export/home/doug. /export is in the root filesystem. There are no
symbolic links. My home directory and public_html directory are
world-readable/searchable, as is index.html.
If the user directory in access.conf is specified as:
Options Indexes ExecCGI
Then I get the following error message:
[Tue Jul 11 11:47:32 1995] httpd: will not follow link
[Tue Jul 11 11:47:32 1995] httpd: access to /export/home/lou/public_html failed
for localhost, reason: client denied by server configuration from -
Adding 'SymLinkIfOwnerMatch' doesn't change it. Likewise if I install the
'SymlinkIfOwnerRoot' patch. The server was restarted each time.
If I specify 'FollowSymLinks' then it works fine, even though no symlinks
are involved. I'm puzzled by this... suggestions ? A Solaris-Ism ? (it
doesn't happen on AIX).
