I have a web server running which is shared among different clients (aka unix users). In a commonly available directory I have stored some php libraries which are used (linked to) by some of the users. As time passes some of the libraries are outdated (but still stored on the server) and I want to delete those folders containing libs that are not linked by ANY user.
Problem is: I am not root on the server and cannot access the user dirs. How can I find out if there is still a link to a certain directory (maybe even number of "active" links) so that I can delete folders no longer needed?
What I tried: Locate links by using "find / -lname /path/filename" which does NOT work because I cannot access the user dirs.
