mounted windows share files show up blank in web browser

Post by ElConquistador » 2008/08/19 00:22:59

ok well first of all hello to everyone. second i was given a task of setting up a webserver and i thought i would give CentOS a try cuz i wanted to try something new. but sadly i must say its been nothing but problems for the last 2 weeks! i now finally gave up the googling and decided to get some 1on1 help. ok here it is.

ive installed CentOS 5.2 and ran all the updates. ok the set up im trying to run is this.

we have our website files (.html etc) on a windows drive. what i want to do is mount that into /var/www/html (because thats where apache is looking for stuff) and then feed it back out to the world. i have mounted the files to that mount point just fine. but after turning off the firewall and SELinux (they were giving me problems) when i try to load my website all i get is a blank page! i dont know why, i tried the same mount command on an ubuntu server box and it works great. so i would like to know how to fix this. then maybe after i can tell you guys of my other issues. lol

all help is appreciated. if you need anymore info just ask. Thanks in advance!

Look into the option FollowSymLinks in the documentation.
