I wonder if it's possibility to tell mount not to map sym links to local FS instead to the remote FS?
Let me get this straight:
- php_workspace is a local directory.
- you want to create a symbolic link between /mnt/Shares and php_workspace, i.e. make php_workspace available on /mnt/Shares.
- You're running in to trouble because you create the symlink in /mnt/Shares, then mount the remote file system on top of /mnt/Shares.
If my summary is correct, you will want to mount the directory first, then create the symbolic link.
