i am running proftpd-1.2.10 and i have it linked to a mysql database for the users. my problem is i have multiple harddrives taht i need linked to users home directories but i get this error when i try to access a symbol link from a ftp client...
"[R] 550 files: Too many levels of symbolic links"
that was from me makeing a link in the home directory by typeing
"ln -s /files files"
but when i type in
"ln -d /files files"
i get this error from the kernel...
"ln: creating hard link `files' to `/files': Invalid cross-device link"
my fstab file looks like..
/dev/hda6 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2
/dev/hda8 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/hda7 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
#/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /files vfat auto,rw,uid=proftpd,gid=proftpd 0 0
so im just wondering how can i add those extra harddrives to my ftp users home directories. i dont want their home to be in the files folder i want them to have personal space but also have access to the files. could anyone help me get this setup with ProFTPD.
