Description

For some reason Lighttpd 1.4.13 doesn't want to show symlinks in the directory listing, and I get a 403 every time I try to access the symlink..
I have done server.follow-symlink = "enable" but it still doesn't work

If this is already fixed in newer versions, would you be very kind to send me an email, so I can notify the maintainers of the package, to update it..
:)

check all involved paths and their permissions.
also the permissions of the parent directories of your symlinked file.

i was having the same problem but had not explicitly set server.follow-symlink = "enable" -- this setting was absent in my (default, fedora core 6) lighttpd.conf file. the docs say that it's enabled by default so i didn't think this was the problem. but eventually i tried adding server.follow-symlink = "enable", restarted lighttpd, and all was fine.

I don't think it is possible that there is a difference between a config with a global server.follow-symlink = "enable" statement and a config without it, if you did not use it in any conditional.

So, the first bug seems to have been a permission problem (missing userfeedback), the second one is not a follow-symlink problem - it could be a general config problem of course; i hope there will be some (positive) changes/fixes for 1.4.19 - but there are enough tickets open for these ;-)
