creating an alias on a server

I am building a server app with LC and would like it to create an alias
(symbolic link) on the server, in a folder that is among those known to Apache
on the server (don't know if that makes any difference). I tried LC 'create
alias' and a shell(ln -s <source> <target>) without success. Then I added 'sudo'
(with an echoed password) to the shell script, but the 'ln' output tells me I'm
not using the correct password. Of course I'm using the only password I ever
gave anything on the server.
I'm not sure what to try next. Does anyone have any ideas?
My tactical goal is to 'put' an existing web page from a CGI, where the page
contains relative links to images etc that are actually in folders outside the
reach of the web server. If I can automate the creation of a symbolic link in
the folder where the CGI resides, I believe I can get there.
My strategic goal is to serve various sets of web pages only to those who are
authorized - whose sign-in info has been validated. Maybe there is a better
tactic to get me there?
Thanks for any ideas.
