Here's what I'm trying to accomplish. I have a macbook and want to place a symlink from my Sites directory (which apache can see) to my mounted usb drive. In the past, I just had everything locally under Sites and all was fine. So it was
I now want
and "symlink" points to my mounted usb drive (which has the same stuff as before). I created the symlink no problem. I set it up as a virtual host, so I modified my /etc/hosts file to add
my httpd.conf file references my virtual hosts file, which has an entry for my site as so
All of this worked fine and dandy until I tried replacing my local files with a symlink. I've googled for hours to no avail. I set FollowSymLinks. All of the directories on the mounted drive have 755 (or greater) access from the root directory up to the directory that has my site. My apache user is _www (which is standard I believe for Mac Os X), but my files are owned by "my_user", although this was never an issue when the files were local.
CustomLog "/private/var/log/apache2/mylocalsite.com-access_log" common
Everything I'm reading says that at this point I probably just have a permissions issue, but I don't see it. I even made my index file 777 access. Any thoughts?
