      Description

      I have offered the variable:

      sharedir=/some/other/directory/
      

      Customer wants to use a symbolic link.

      Here is an example of what happens when using a symbolic link and no value for sharedir:

      root@mxs:~# mkdir /opt/gui
      root@mxs:~# mv /usr/share/maxscale/gui/* /opt/gui
      root@mxs:~# rmdir /usr/share/maxscale/gui
      root@mxs:~# ln -s /opt/gui /usr/share/maxscale/gui
      root@mxs:~# ls /usr/share/maxscale/gui/

      css                   f8fbdc474808cb732257.worker.js  favicon-32x32.png  fonts        index.html  safari-pinned-tab.svg
       
      root@mxs:~# systemctl restart maxscale
      root@mxs:~# curl http://192.168.20.208:8989
      {"errors": [ { "detail": "Access denied" } ] }root@mxs:~#
