About symlinking the "serialised" directory

The manual on creating a wiki family states in one section that the "serialised" folder should not be symlinked. I guess there is a good reason and I would like to know about it. The reason not to do it for the other folders mentioned is quite obvious but here I ran out of knowledge.

I don't think that info is correct. I see no reason not to symlink the serialised folder. (In theory you can custom generate some of the serialized content using maintenance scripts, and have it be different for different wikis, but there's really no sane reason to do that)

Heiya Bawolff, thank you for your assessment. I guess I will give it a shot and see if the wiki deteriorates somehow. Shouldn't though considering your thoughts. Cheers

If it explodes, do let me know.

Definitely, but no unexpected behaviour so far. I will leave the money on the counter if continues to work out. :)
