Symbolic links

movieprodw asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13

I have two domains, two ip addresses and one server.

I am trying to make a magento store work with one installation.

I had it setup as an addon domain and it was just pointing from one folder to another and that was fine but since I moved it to two ip addresses it is broken.

Is there a way to make symbolic links between the domains?

This is how I made them before when they were in the same folder:
ln -s ../public_html/var ./var

so I tried
ln -s /var/www/vhosts/magentodomain.com/var ./var

but when I check the link it does not work.

Thanks for any help,
