[SOLVED] my /var/www symlink isn't symlinking

Hi there Everyone!

On BL install, I used the welcome script to install the Apache server and it's running without issue but the symlink to ~/htdocs is not working.  If I visit /localhost/schwim, it results in a 404(there is an index.html file)

schwim@schwim-vm-bl:/var/www$ ls -la
total 12
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 Jan 11  2018 .
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 Jan 11  2018 ..
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Jan 11  2018 html
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   19 Jan 11  2018 schwim -> /home/schwim/htdocs
schwim@schwim-vm-bl:/var/www$

localhost does show the default Apache page and phpmyadmin is accessible.

What have I done wrong?

Hm ... if http://yoursite/ works, then probably, your link

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   19 Jan 11  2018 schwim -> /home/schwim/htdocs

should be inside '/var/www/html' directory. (At the moment it is 'only' inside '/var/www'.) And it should work with the address http://yoursite/schwim

Try deleting old link, and creating a new one.
