WMin/VMin, virtual hosts and symbolic links


So, I'm trying to set up a Drupal multi-site installation, as described here - http://drupal.org/node/107347 - but I seem to be having a bit of trouble.

I've got a virtual server set up in Virtualmin (running on CentOS 5.5) which is hosting the core Drupal installation (let's call it siteA.co.uk). I've created a copy of the Drupal database and created a new settings.php file, as the tutorial says.

I've since created a new virtual server in Virtualmin (let's call it siteB.co.uk).

Finally, I created a symbolic link in the web root folder of siteB.co.uk, like so: ln -s /home/siteA/public_html/ /home/siteB/public_html/

When I access siteB.co.uk, the tutorial suggests I should be able to set up the Drupal site for siteB.co.uk and set up the admin account, however all I see is the default 403 Forbidden page.

What have I misunderstood or done wrong?

Hi,

You should look at apache error_log for more info, but I guess that you miss "FollowSymLinks" among the other options in the Options directive in httpd.conf
