Description

Hi

I am trying a 6.1.7 -> 6.2.0 upgrade and I noticed that the install tool is marking symlinked directories as errors that need to be corrected.

To me this is not an error as symlinks to directories are not errors that need to be corrected. I often symlink entire document roots to quickly switch served content.

I would suggest that if a symlink is detected that the symlink target is followed (using PHP readlink) and then verified. Of course a target can have a different name than it's link, so that would need to be taken in consideration. As long as the link has the correct naming there should be no problems.

Anything can be logically symlinked in a hosting environment for all manner of perfectly valid reasons. They should not be marked as errors unless they are truly broken links. (i.e. the target doesn't exist)

A symlink in itself is not an automatic error without further investigation.
