OS X Server : Make externally stored files accessible to Web server ?

Question asked by Oliver_Reid on Oct 1, 2012

My application's "Reports" table manages pdf reports stored in a container field using non secure external storage

 

FMS will not accept a relative path for external storage that uses '....', of course.

 

But can I make the storage location directly available to Apache so users can view and download them via a browser?

 

I don't want to store mutiple copies of each pdf and it would be really helpful if I could delete pdfs that are obsolete via the Reports table.

 

(Tried an alias to the storage folder placed in the WebServer folder -- did not work)
