Basic Commands: Symbolic Links
Symbolic links allow an administrator to point a link (file or directory) to another real location.
How do I create a symbolic link?
# ln –s [target file/directory] /link/location/to/file/or/directory
For example, you wish to link /etc/httpd/conf to point to the real location of /usr/local/apache/conf
The command would look like this:
# ln –s /usr/local/apache/conf /etc/httpd/conf
Assure that the destination for your link (in our example this would be /usr/local/apache/conf) does not already exist.
