I recently posted a question regarding connecting to a TNS service from PHP.

I had been getting the error TNS operation timed out from PHP while
connecting via sqlplus worked perfectly fine.
If I was not using a TNS alias from PHP but a real connect string such as
A=(SID=qa))) it worked perfectly fine as well.

I had a symbolic link pointing from $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin to
tnsnames.ora file (cvs checked out version). After replacing the symbolic
link with a hard link it worked fine.

Is it that Apache does not follow the symbolic links outside of its home for
security reasons?
