apache is only showing one file in the directory


I'm trying to setup a personal web server. I have several files in a directory that is owner by root. I have a symbolic link to this directory in /var/www/html/downloads. When I access this directory in the web page, alice_in_chains_LIVE_Facelift.vob is the only file that is visible. Anyone know why this is?

sym links are not usually followed by default in apache. httpd is hopefully not running as root on your box either. post your httpd.conf, that should shed some light on your problem

The user account "apache" is running the webserver.

<Directory "/var/www/html">

#
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
#
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
#
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#options
# for more information.
#
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

#
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
AllowOverride None

#
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
#
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory>





<Directory /var/www/html/downloads>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Access Area"
AuthUserFile /usr/local/etc/httpd/users
Require user ThrowingStones
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec

I used chgrp and chown to change ownership and group to apache -- but the behaviour didn't change.

Is there a size restriction on what apache can show? I have apache displaying a symbolic link to a directory. Using mozilla to view the directory, only alice_in_chains_LIVE_Facelift.vob and the nfslockfile.lock is visible ---- the permission are the same on all the vob and iso files. The only difference is that all the other files are 2GB and up where as those 2 files are below 2GB.


Index of /downloads/video
Icon Name Last modified Size Description[DIR] Parent Directory
alice_in_chains_LIVE_Facelift.vob 01-Feb-2005 21:17 1.6G
nfslockfile.lock 18-Jan-2005 21:55 0
Apache/2.0.52 (Fedora) Server at 192.168.X.X Port 80

After doing a little research on apache using google. Apache can only handle >2GB files if large file support is compiled in. Additionally it looks like compiling in LFS will break other modules. Does anyone know when LFS support is going to be added in as default or which modules will break?

Thanks,
Nate
