I am able to make a symbolic link in moodlata/repository/example_folder with no problem but the issues is when I have a symbolic link within the example_folder. Here is a hypothetical example on how it is set up:
ln -s /example_folder /moodledata/repository/example_sym
the example_folder then has symbolic links pointing to multiple dept folders:
/example_folder/dept1 -> /nas_1/dept1
/example_folder/dept2 -> /nas_1/dept2
/example_folder/dept3 -> /nas_1/dept3
There are no permission issues and I can navigate with this link within shell as the apache user with no problem.
When I attempt to dig into the sub folders in File picker, the symbolic links just loop back to their parent folder.
Has anyone else encountered this? What was your work around?
