I have installed tomcat 6.0.14 on my Linux 2.4.29 kernel. The tomcat RELEASNOTES contain the following:
Symlinking static resources:
By default, Unix symlinks will not work when used in a web application to link
resources located outside the web application root directory.
This behavior is optional, and the "allowLinking" flag may be used to disable
I am using symlinks for various aspects of the tomcat installation. I haven't run into a problem so far, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Where do I find this elusive "allowLinking" flag? The RELEASE-NOTES.txt simply says it exists, but apparently assumes the reader knows where. I see references to it in ./webapps/docs/config/printer/context.html and ./webapps/docs/config/context.html, but these just appear to be documentation, not configuration.
Where, and how do I set it?
