Problem met symlink

I have installed a rails application “shop” on my root folder.

The document folder is /public_html

I created a symlink ln -s ~/shop/public ~/public_html

Now when i direct my browser to the domain it isn´t giving the ruby on

rails homepage but the directory under /public_html

/public (symlink)

When i go to /public i get the ror homepage.

I want to go the ror homepage without having to go to public…But how
do i do

this ?
