I need allow access to a sym-linked directory within ~/Sites from my Apache. I Symlinked the directories like this
ln -s ~/path/to/the/source/directory/ ~/Sites/source-link-here
Now whenever I fire up a GET request I get a 403 reply
curl http://localhost/~username/source-link-here/ <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN"> <html><head> <title>403 Forbidden</title> </head><body> <h1>Forbidden</h1> <p>You don't have permission to access /~username/source-link-here on this server.</p> ...
How can I tell Apache to allow acces to the symlinked directory and how do I tell Apache to allow this only for requests fired from localhost.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
