    Hello!

    Symlinks on the directories "access-logs" and "www" are FILES in the File Manager.

    But If I use shell:

    access-logs is directory.

    What I can fix it? Oo

    It's neither. access-logs is a symbolic link to an Apache log folder that stores raw apache logs for the user in question. Your shell confirms this. File manager seems to just not understand symlinks. Not sure what you're trying to fix though or what sort of problem this is causing for you, if you can clarify that.

    Hello :)

    There is an internal case open to address this issue. For reference, the case number is 93177. Note that it's more of a visual flaw that should not pose any problems to your users.

    Thank you.
