Description

If index.php in DOC_ROOT is a file and not a symlink (to typo3_src/index.php) the install tool displays this error message:

Path /index.php is not a link
The target /index.php should be a link, but is of type file. This can not be fixed. Please investigate.

Some providers (e.g. Domainfactory and jweiland.net) do not allow symlinks to files (only to directories) for security reasons.

The install tool should reflect this possibility.

We will lover the severity. However the core updater will not work of the folder structure does not match. Maybe we will add the index.php part as an exception, however there are concerns that the code will get to complicated that way.

IMHO all of these checks related to the core updater should be disabled completely if the core updater itself has been disabled.

Are there any news on the "exception part"?
Imho the very nice and useful feature of automatic core updates is absolutly useless with Domainfactory - and others not allowing symlinks on files

Hint: The core updater is just one usage of the FolderStructure, there may be more than these.

What is missing in the folder structure code:

Allow index.php to be an symlink OR a file, but if it is a file, then its content must be identical to a given template.
