server.follow-symlink option

server.follow-symlink

allow to follow-symlinks

Default: enabled

server.follow-symlink = "disable" hinders performance, as more checks are done in the filesystem.
Instead of server.follow-symlink = "disable", it is recommended that lighttpd be isolated and/or containerized to improve security.
