Hi

I have symlink's on my site from years. Lately I noticed that if I clicked on the symlink using ftp I will get error:
550 test: No such file or directory

But on my web the symlink still work fine.

But the normal symlink that comes with my site like @www for public_html is working fine. I think that mean the way I made my symlink's is not working anymore with FTP.

I am using this command:
ln -s PathToFolder/Folder Folder

Please advice

Best regards,
Tariq

Hello :)

It's possible you are noticing a change that started with cPanel version 11.40. The 'virtual chroot' feature of Pure-FTPd is now disabled by default. Thus, chroot becomes "/" for symlinks. For example, a symlink to /etc, will now point to /home/$username/public_html/ftpuser/etc.

Thank you.
