postnuke and gallery


I just installed a postnuke site and I want to integrate gallery into it. They say to move the gallery to the module directory under postnuke. I was wondering if I could just use a symbolic link (directory redirection) like it seems my webhost is using to point www to public_html... I was just wondering how to do that so I could give it a try. In search around on google I also saw something like this mentioned as aliasing... Just haven't figured out how to do it

Any thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks,
gbbiv

Well...

In your httpd.conf file you can setup aliasing which means:
/var/stuff/coolstuff /cool
As an alias causes your users to be directed to /var/stuff/coolstuff when they type:
http://yoursite.com/cool

SO, if you wanted to set it up that way I don't see what the problem would be. The other option that you mentioned would be to symlink which I do believe should work pretty much the same (make sure exec priviledges are there on the directory that you are symlinking to). To symlink:
ln -s /home/pictures/toms/cat /var/www/htdocs/postnuke/gallery
Should work (of course all the directories used in my examples should be changed to the actual directories).

Cool

I tried the symbolic link and it seems to be working with very preliminary testing.

Thanks!
