Your posted username.conf file is properly configured. I had this problem, as well. It comes down to a permissions problem with your Documents directory. If you do 'ls -al' in your home directory, you will probably notice either "drwxr--r--" or ""drwxr--r--+" for the permissions of your Documents directory. If you execute 'chmod a+rx Documents' from your home directory, you will probably solve this problem. It worked for me. Please, let me know if it works for you, as well.

Thank you so much, this was exactly the solution to my issue. It wasn't enough that the linked directory had the correct permissions -- Indeed, the +entire path+ needed the correct permissions for Apache to navigate the link!
Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2009 9:06 AM (in response to jeffinmotion)Hi,
My question is possibly analogous to jeffinmotion's in that I'm wanting to use symbolic links to four firewire drives in such a way as to represent them as one big drive to an NMT (Popcorn Hour) in my case. Ideally, there's a way that I can put symlinks in a folder/directory and mount that as one folder.
Is that doable?
The problem is that the PH's firmware will only see one shared device at a time, i.e., my a/v content is spanning four 1 TB HDs and if I want to watch a vid on a volume other than that which is currently mounted, I have to back out to the Source menu and select and mount the desired drive; cumbersome, to be kind.
Regrettably I've so little experience w/Terminal and UNIX that I don't have the vocabulary to properly phrase my questions.
I'm more than willing to reiterate thoughiMac 2.4 GHz/4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Popcorn Hour A-100 NMT
