Okay, first of, welcome to the forum, and (apparently) Linux...
Three days? That's a snap, some of us have been "in combat" with something for months...but, dont let that get you down.

Let's see what's what. WHAT have you done so far? Dump the ls -Al of the link here, possibly it could be a permission issue. Also, what are the permissions to the target of the link? Possibly the system CAN pass tru the link, but meets something "back there" it's not allowed to do something with. Maybe, (long shot) a look-see of the ini file of the server as well?
Some thoughts.


PS - allow us (the community) to help you. Help us help you by padding the (next) mails/posts with some more details...
