ln -s /home/marcelo/MEGASync/localhost /var/www/html/

I am using symlink from terminal ubuntu to get all sites from my /home/marcelo/MEGASync/localhost/ to my www of my apache. I Access localhost from my browser and I get this:

flavio/        #I access these -----

I have this in my content of the path: localhost/flavio

nub/             #and now, I access these

When I accessed this path in browser, I get this error:

Not Found  
The requested URL /nub was not found on this server.

But I have a structure of codeigniter in this path: /localhost/flavio/nub/

What's ocurred in this?
And how to I will solve this?

    Apache by default won't follow unsafe (i.e. pointing outside of its DocumentRoot) symlinks. I think there's a config option that can be set to allow it, though. – Toby Speight May 16 '17 at 15:19

    @TobySpeight If that's what the OP is asking, a better way to deal with it would be to just point DocumentRoot to /home/marcelo/MEGASync/localhost... – Satō Katsura May 16 '17 at 15:22
  • @SatoKatsura Good idea, I will go test this! – Alex May 16 '17 at 15:24
  • @SatoKatsura it seems to me that it gave me the same problem – Alex May 16 '17 at 16:41

I would ask you to check the status of selinux, if it's in enforcing mode then you should allow apache context for this path /home/marcelo/MEGASync/localhost

To check the selinux status :
