jquery.js and symbolic links
Category: Website Troubleshooting
hello all -
i have dozens of jquery.js scripts scattered throughout my server.
i thought life would be wonderful if i could have just one jquery.js file, maybe at:
and instead of the jquery.js in dozens of different places, i could just have a symbolic link in place of every jquery.js:
jquery.js -> /usr/local/lib/jquery/jquery.js
however, i don't know what to set "chown" to. i hoped "root:nobody" would work but it does not, and neither does "nobody:nobody" - the only way it seems to work is if i set it to one specific user - which makes this method not work as desired.

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. I would suggest trying to set the ownership to root:root and then the file permissions to 0644. This will allow the "world" to read the file. I hope this helps!
