I am running RHv3 and Apache 2.0.46. So my default webserver directory is /var/www/html/

At the same level is a nice directory with the cool default webalizer stuff in it at /var/www/usage/

So, I am thinking, it would be nice to be able to browse to this page (/var/www/usage/index.html) so I can peep the usage. I also thought the best/cleanest/most proper way to do this would be to make a symbolic link of the usage directory and place it in the web directory (/var/www/html/<usage>/index.html).

However, that gives me a permissions error (403 forbidden). This is mildly puzzling as the permissions for /var/www/usage/ are set to 775.

Can someone please help me to clear up my mis-understanding and suggest a proper way to access the /var/www/usage/ directory from the convienance of a browser?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
