download symbolic link in /var/www/html

download symbolic link in /var/www/html

I’ve created a symbolic link in /var/www/html for a backup in admin_backups:

Code:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root    root      70 Sep  2 12:57 user.admin.xxx.tar.gz -> /home/admin/admin_backups/user.admin.xxx.tar.gz


I tried to download the link through: http://IP/user.admin.xxx.tar.gz
But I got the 403 error,
I tried to change the owner of file to apache or webapps, but It didn’t work either.
I know I can put the file to public_html of a user and download it, But I want to download it on this way.
Is there any problem with this way?

Any help would be much appreciated.
