The other thing to double-check besides SELinux is to make sure that the
ownership of the symlink and the target directory is suitable for whatever
the Apache symlink following is configured to do.  For instance, if you're
using SymlinksIfOwnerMatch, then the Unix UID owner of the symlink and the
target directory have to be the same.
