I have 3 domains that I would like to have share a single directory. This single directory will contain product images that all 3 sites have in common. I have created symbolic links in 2 of the sites that point to the directory of the third site. When attempting to access files in the shared folder from either of the 2 sites I receive an invalid permissions message. The shared folder has been chmod -R 777 * on it so the only thing that I can think of is perhaps the open_basedir setting is getting in my way. Does anyone have any thoughts on how I can get this to work and what needs to be done?
