    [Help] Use.htaccess error 403

    I have removed the option FollowSymLinks vps (Main>> Service Configuration>> Apache Configuration>> Global Configuration) to raise the security level, but when put FollowSymLinks option is the user account is used on the vps file. htaccess files were accessed 403 Forbidden error. What can I do to fix this and still leave the option FollowSymLinks?
    Pls Help Me! Thank you very much !

    Try looking into Apache's error_log file for any errors.
    Try looking AllowOverride directive in httpd.conf in cPanel - "The Easy Apache Configuration System - Adding Custom Directives" or in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file on vps
    If it is "AllowOverride None", then your .htaccess file is completely ignored.
    If it is "AllowOverride All", you should be able to set anything you want in your .htaccess file, so the included "Options +FollowSymlinks" should work.

    Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden

    Just add the following code in the .htaccess file
    RewriteEngine On
    Options +FollowSymLinks +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
