I have command-line debian and I have installed Apache2 and php5. The php documentation is a set of Web pages. i would 
like to get Apache to display it. However, the web root is /var/www/html and the php documenhtation is in 
/usr/sharee/doc/php-doc/html . I thought I could put a link in the webroot that would reach it.
link phpdoc.html /usr/share/doc/php-doc/html/index.html
However the link command won't accept the long file name. What would work?
