I have been using dropbox to sync up multiple computers using MAMP (on mac) using this technique and it has been working pretty well for my web dev needs. Now I want to add my #! computer to the fold but I am running into a permissions problem.
Here is what I have done so far:
I've already configured dropbox and have my vhosts/htdocs folder at
and that directory is filled with a whole bunch of directories that are virtual hosts (ex. www.myawesomewebsite.com) because mamp is set up like the tutorial to see that folder as the root for virtual hosts.
I don't want to go the virtual hosts route on my #! machine, I just want to use localhost as the webdomain root with subdirectories for each project (ex. localhost/vhosts/www.myawesomesite.com/index.html)
I installed the LAMP stack via the cb-welcome script and had it install the htdocs in my home folder. I then added a second link to the vhosts folder with
ln -s ~/Dropbox/Development/vhosts /var/www/vhosts
Although http://localhost/htdocs works fine, http://localhost/vhosts/ does not, citing "403 forbidden, Forbidden You don't have permission to access /vhosts on this server."
I checked out the ls -al permissions and the all have srccon:srccon as the correct user and group, so I cannot figure out what apache's issue is.
Will this even link right or will i need individual symbolic links for each project?
Thanks for any help.
