I haven't found any answers to updating a symlink here or on Google or searching apache.org...
Say I've got a symlink in the SSL folder, mapping to the non-secure 'nav folder, set up like:
ln -s /big/dom/xdomain/www/nav/ nav
Now, when I update a file in /www/nav/ and look at the corresponding file in /www/Secure_Server/nav/, it shows the updated file's contents but the include on the server is still pulling from the old contents.
Does the symlink have to be removed and recreated each time? I would hope not, or that eliminiates half of the reason for using it in the first place -- not having to update two identical files in two places (the other being to avoid secure/non-secure content warnings if using a shared file).
I read that not using the '-s' switch would make it a hard link and point to the data not the file. Is that perhaps part of the answer?
