Subject [users@httpd] Mess with symbolic links, directory owners and "403 Forbidden" error
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2007 09:29:28 GMT

Using Apache 2.0.51, I've got a VirtualHost '' mounted on:

Within this directory, I've got another directory ('test'), and within it
one symbolic link:
/var/www/mydomain/test/images -> /var/www/mydomain/dir/common_images/

If I make 'images' owner be 'root.root' it works ok when accessing
'', but if the owner is
'apache.apache' I get a '403 Forbidden error'. In both cases,
'foo.php' script's got execution permissions (also 'images'

How can I execute this script with 'apache.apache' owner? Thank you very much.
