Installation issue with Mandriva,

Hi all,

I'm trying to install webwork on our university computer, which uses mandriva distribution. I've been following the instructions for RH9 on the wiki, since I figured mandriva and RH are reasonably similar to each other.

This has actually turned out to be a bit more complicated than I had anticipated, although, I finally got apache up and running, and the webwork initial webpage actually comes up now. However, the image and the links are not working. Looking at the apache error log, I get the following:

[Mon Dec 08 18:25:46 2008] [error] [client] Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /opt, referer:

It seems to me that apache is searching the wrong directory for the webworks files. However, I have no idea how I can fix that. Does anybody here have a suggestion on which setting needs to be edited?


PS I'm enclosing httpd.conf, just in case it is useful.

Never mind, got that working. Apparently I needed to include a directive for apache to follow symlinks.
