Description

Hello,
I've installed the latest phpAlbum software on my Linux box. By default all photos are placed outside the webserver structure. To prevent unnecessary copies of my photos I created symbolic links to the directories which should be accessible via phpAlbum.
Unfortunately the php code seems to always reference to files and directories (function: file_exists) and doesn't allow to use symbolic links. The phpAlbum code should be able to follow symbolic links (extended by function: is_link) for directories and also for files.

Regards Juergen
