SSl and symbolic link


Hi!

I have an SSL cert (installed for me) and am having problems creating symbolic links so that it can be shared.

Here is what I am doing (root access)

mkdir /web/SECUREUSER/public_html/DESIREDUSER/secure

chown -R DESIREDUSER.DESIREDUSER /web/SECUREUSER/public_html/DESIREDUSER

ln -s /web/SECUREUSER/public_html/DESIREDUSER/secure /web/DESIREDUSER/public_html/secure

Via SSH I can see the links, change ownership, chmod, list and all that good stuff. Via FTP as the DESIREDUSER - nothing.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Jim

What ftp server are you using?

Did you reload the file listing? Some ftp clients cache this sort of thing.

Actually.. though of that - so even in case my "reload" wasn't working, I tried a 2nd FTP program... nothing.

Don't worry - I do it all the time. Take a look at:

Well... took a little bit of reading, but I have checked that, and the config.... symlinks are on - still no show on the directory.

Still figure I am doing something dumb with the command lines.
