Symbolic link


one of my clients asked:-

Can you please tell me how I can create my own symbolic link? I renamed one of my folders, and I would like to make the old name link to the new one so that old URLs will still work.

Any ideas how to resolve it through CPanel....

Just use redirection in the .htaccess file.

Use ssh...

Go to the directory you want the link in...


or type 'man ln' for more info on links. You'll likely want to use a symbolic link, hence the '-s'.
