Allow apache2 to read from mounted device
this might be a newbie question, but i just don't get it.
i'm running my system with winxp and linux.
on both os's is an apache2 running.
i'd like to use the htdocs on both linux and windows.
so i moved the htdocs to a fat32-partiotion, which is accessible from within linux.
(let's say /mnt/workspace/htdocs)
changing the apache server root to /mnt/workspace/htdocs causes a 'forbidden'
changing the server root back to /var/www/localhost/htdocs and replacing the original htdocs with a symlink to /mnt/workspace/htdocs does not help either.
even if i change the apache.conf to 'FollowSymLinks', still no access to my data.
(errorlog: No symbolic links allowed for ....)
i think, it's some kind of ownership or rights-problem.
or maybe a change in my fstab (option for /mnt/workspace is set to users)?
any ideas ?
thanks so far ....
