Apache directive "followsymlink" does not work. I created vhost.conf with the following content:

    [root@]# cat /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/conf/vhost.conf

    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs>
    Options +FollowSymlinks
    AllowOverride All

When I try to browse any simlink in browser, I got error:

    # tail -f /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/statistics/logs/error_log
    Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs/css


One of the possible reason that owner of the symlink does not correspond the owner of the symlinked files.


If you are sure that your server is secure, modify vhost.conf as below:

Options +FollowSymLinks -SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
