@gitblit gitblit commented Aug 12, 2015

Originally reported on Google Code with ID 511

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1: using a symbolic link in the git.repositoriesFolder prevents Tomcat from starting
the application.  I can remove the symbolic link, start Tomcat and successfully start
gitblit, and then relink the directory and the application will run fine (until Tomcat
needs to restart).

What is the expected output?
For the application to successfully start in Tomcat.

What do you see instead?

I've found a bug in determining the relative path for a repo from the basefolder when
using a symbolic link, which I have fixed.  But I think your problem was addressed
before this by some fixes to repository cache handling.  Either way, if you build from
master I think it'll work better for you.
