I recently set up ViewVC with the default install location (/usr/local/viewvc-1.1.17) as we have a VPS. The problem though, is I’ve tried to make a symlink from our website to a directory in the viewvc directory; that is:
But when I go to my web browser to see viewvc, it gives me a 403 error saying I don’t have permission to view this directory. The same owner of the website also owns the viewvc-1.1.17 directory, but obviously not the lower directories usr and local (root owns these). Is the problem the fact that root owns usr and local? Or is there something else going on?
Thanks in advance.
