Software :: Create A Symbolic Link That Points To An Ftp Location?

Jul 1, 2011

I have a large collection of files on a computer (tallgrass) and tallgrass is running an ftp server, which I have the username and password to. There is about 600 GB of files on tallgrass that I need access to, but I don't have a big enough hard drive. I need these data files to run a cpu-intensive calculation, and my CPU is significantly better than tallgrass' cpu, which is why I want to do it on my computer. (Tallgrass also doesn't have enough RAM.) What I would like to do is create a "symbolic link" on my hard drive that will point to the directory containing the data on tallgrass. Read-only is perfectly OK. This way I could read from mylink/data0001.dat and it would read from the file data0001.dat over ftp from tallgrass. I shouldn't have any speed issues because tallgrass is on my 1 Gbps LAN. Is there a way I can do this?

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount To Vista Needed For Apache - Symbolic Link Not Allowed Or Link Target Not Accessible

Apr 26, 2010

I have a problem where I'm using Ubuntu linux to mount a Windows Vista machine's USB drive and access it on the web using Apache. I did have the USB drive plugged into the Linux machine directly and that was working via the web. FollowSymLinks is on in httpd.conf

[Code]....

The mount works and I can see the files (see above) from my regular linux user account. If I make a test file in /mnt and soft link to that, I can see it on the web. So it's just the mount to the vista machine that seems to be a problem. It's supposed to be a simple read-only mount and the apache login should (I think) be able to see the same generic root access permissions.

log from apache: [Mon Apr 26 20:39:42 2010] [error] [client 99.99.99.99] Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /home/user1/pub_html/Music, referer: https://xx.xx.xx/~user1/music.html

The credentials have a login and password that matches a special read-only account on Vista. I can see the files on the system from Linux, but not via the web. As mentioned above, a different link to the same /mnt area works fine via the web. I've tried several different mount options with no success.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Remove Symbolic Link?

Jul 23, 2011

I created the following symbolic link:

Code:
ln -s /home/vichingo/.gvfs/"media on mybook" /media/mybook

this worked, only now I have a folder media on mybook within the mybook folder.

I wanted to remove this link, but when doing:

Code:
sudo rm /media/mybook/media on mybook

I get:

Code:
rm: cannot remove `/media/mybook/media': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `on': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `mybook': No such file or directory

for some reason I am either unable to remove the link or change the name of the folder to change the spaces into underscores.

General :: Ubuntu Symbolic Link Content Of Folder

Jun 24, 2010

I have two folders such as
nonserved/
folder1/
folder2/

And a served folder via Apache
media/
js/
css/
img/

In the end, I want to include/append contents of /nonserved to /media so that [URL] will be as such:
/media
/js
/css
/img
/folder1
/folder2

I am running Ubuntu Server, I am up for either apache config or symbolic link based answer :) Plus nonserved folder is rather dynamic thus manual symbolic linking to each folder is impossible.

General :: Make A Symbolic Link Read Only?

Feb 2, 2010

Can you make a symlink read only? I have about 100 users who all have a .login. They like to modify their .login, which is fine in most cases, but sometimes they do it wrong & it screws up a LOT of the things they are supposed to be doing. Because of this, I'm going to lock down all .logins & I thought, "wouldn't it be nice if we could modify one file & all users would get the modification?" So I'm currently testing having everyone's .login point to a central .login via symlink. It works fine, but it appears that the users can [re]move the link & replace it with a file, thus defeating the purpose. Can I lock down the symlink so the user cannot move or remove the link? FWIW, it must be a symbolic link (as opposed to a hard link) as the file it points to is on an NFS share (not the same file system).

Programming :: Proposal For Symbolic Link Technology?

Sep 12, 2010

Consider that symbolic links at times can be broken. The target reference can be lost or misplaced. As such, usage of a symbolic link becomes deterred or broken. I propose the following: Symbolic links from now on carry a checksum relating to the original file they are linked to. The original file will carry a property that checks if it has been changed. This property will figure out the new checksum, reconfigure the symbolic link, and continue the symbolic link. Furthermore, if the system were to change, there would exist the possibility of have a symblink-comparison feature that allows the user to check the entire filesystem for files that meet the checksum criteria so that symbolic links can once more be re-established.

Fedora :: Broken Symbolic Link Within A Network Share

Jun 29, 2010

I have 2 PC's running FC11. The server is sharing a path /raid/shared.windows and the other is mounting that path.

On the server there is a symbolic link /raid/shared.windows/dir that points to /raid/dir

The problem is that this link is broken when the viewed from the mount point on the other PC.

Is it possible that the link is trying to look at /raid/dir on the other PC, rather then on the server?

If so how do I fix it, such that the symbolic link is linked to the right directory on the server?

Fedora :: Bash Script Symbolic Link Multiple Folders?

Dec 23, 2009

I've been using fedora for quite some time now but I've never really written any bash scripts so I'm new to this. Basically what I'm trying to do is create symbolic links of movies that I have organized in this fashion:

Code:
Movies/A
Movies/B
Movies/C
etc.

I basically want to create an "ALL" folder that has links to all the movies in their designated folders. I have created somewhat of a bash script but it does not work.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
cd '/media/Videos/Movies'
for file_name in `ls *`
do
ln -s "$file_name" All/$file_name
done

I don't think its creating the right link to the movies and it is not taking into account the fact that some of the movies have spaces in their names.
