    If you are using mod_ruid2, you would need to uncheck the "symlink race condition protection" option in easyapache. Mod_RUID2 will provide protection against cross-account symlinks.

    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned, you should run EasyApache with Mod_Ruid2 and with "Symlink Race Condition Protection" disabled from the Exhaustive Options List stage of the EasyApache interface.

    Thank you.
