Soft Links


I have installed GLFTPD and need to move my glftpd/site directory from /glftpd to another location with more drive space.I think I need to create a soft link. How do I create the link so that GLFTPD works correctly?
Thanks

You should be able to remove the glftpd/site directory then create a symlnk to your partition with more space using something like
Code:
ln -s /someDir/newSite glftpd/site
HTH

Thanks Jamie!

Do I put this code in the glftpd.conf file?

No - that is just how you would create a symlink from the command line to put your 'site' directory somewhere else but still have the config file looking at the original location. I assumed that is what you were after.

cheers
