    Proftpd Folder Alias


    I'm trying to get a folder from my FTP Dir to be useable in my http dir so I can do hyperlinking in forums. I want to beable to have a user upload a file to my ftp and beable to use a http hyperlink for downloading. Such as they upload to a dir called upload on the ftp and then in the hyperlink the folder is aliased in my apache server to be http://www.dnsname.net/share. How would I go about setting something like this up I have been trying for about a month and am stumped on finding the answer.

    in my commonhttpd.conf I have my Alias set to the folder like so

    Alias /share /home/FTPUser/uploads

    When I try to access it in a link I get Forbiden what am I missing? The folder has the right permisions I think. I have it set for the user and group apache.

    Ok I think I got it but I have to Rim out this line

    #<Directory />
    # Options -All -Multiviews
    # AllowOverride None
    # <IfModule mod_access.c>
    # Order deny,allow
    # Deny from all
    # </IfModule>
    #</Directory>

    I don't think it should be for security reasons how can I solve my 403 error without having to rem this out and have next to no security?
