I'm setting up my local LAMP server, and when I go to it, I can't follow symlinks with the Apache user (www-data). At this point, I've tried chowning and chmoding and I've added
Options FollowSymLinks to my httpd.conf file for my DocumentRoot. I'm at a loss.
So here's what I'm going to ask:
If you were setting up your Apache with a standard 11.10 LAMP install, what would be the steps you would take to get symlinks to work correctly for the Apache user?
