Servers are back, probably still need a few tweaks in config.
And, it still seems to be laggy.

About shared configuration files, I was about telling you, if symbolic links fail, to write a simple .sh script that copies a certain configuration file to all your server installations at once...

Symlinkin' to files outside the engine's virtual files system seems to work fine here. You could also try hardlinks.

Symlinking and hardlinking both work very fine, just be careful with files permissions if your goal is to make the files downloadable from a webserver (and this is a very nice way to avoid redundancy and synchronization problems).

Tested extensively so I can assure you about this.

Just another note: it seems that symlinking a folder does not work (you cannot anyway hardlink a folder due to the nature of the Unix filesystem), but symlinking/hardlinking files work fine.

If someone try to symlinking a whole folder and get it to work then please share how you did!

Code:
# create a folder somewhere
mkdir ~/foo && cd ~/foo
# move a pk3 for testing
mv ~/.openarena/baseoa/pro-q3tourney7.pk3 .
# create a symlink in homepath
ln -s ~/foo ~/.openarena/bar
# launch oa and test
openarena +set fs_game bar
