      Description

      I think webdav can be problematic with symlinks. Another idea might be for me to create an apache alias from Actional_Diagnostics-latest.exe to the actual file path. I just need to build in the functionality to let project admins to enter this info themselves and then have the system reload the apache configs.

      It won't happen for Monday, but I think it's definitely do-able.

          how about you put a redirect into your static website - in a .htaccess file? Then you can update those redirects whenever you like in your git/svn repo?

          Not really sure this is an actual issue for the Forge infra. Since WebDav doesn't support symlinks, we can either create a link using .htaccess for redirects - or just update the links in the website (which are links too, hypelinks rather than file links) - so moving this to the 2.0 bucket for now

          The site now supports .htaccess files for the project websites. The only problem is that WebDAV does not really let you edit them.
