We have recently upgraded our security settings to prevent some exploits and hacks. Disabling the possibility to override some Options (only to All, SymLinksIfOwnerMatch and FollowSymLinks) allows better isolation of shared hosting accounts from accessing each others for better security implementation on the server side.

With these changes, some default settings in .htaccess files will need to be replaced or updated. Below is a list of the commands that need to be changed or commented out:

Options All
Options FollowSymLinks
Options SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

The other Options: ExecCGI, Includes, IncludesNOEXEC, Indexes, MultiViews are not affected, they remain working without any problem.
