Some time back you have solved my problem of creating symlink as
database was fixed. But now When I am putting special characters in
symlinks like "." it is not readable as database. If I am creating
database with special characters from mysql command line I can create
it but an symlink with special character is not readable.
Is it possible that I can read a symplink with special characters as databse.
Thanks in advance.
