    Apache FollowSymLinks

    Hi,

    I am having following issue with Apache:
    Server version: Apache/2.2.3
    Server built: Jan 15 2008 20:33:30

    The problem is following in the error log:

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

    Website is using mod_rewrite, but there are no symbolic links on the file system. So, I wanted to do following:

    <Directory /some/dir>
    Options None
    AllowOverride None
    ...
    </Directory>

    In another words, I wanted to disable FollowSymLinks as it slows the whole server down (while searching for symlinks in every single directory).

    But, somehow, it seems that mod_rewrite needs this as well?

    Is this true, and does it mean that I can not disable FollowSymLinks if I want to use mod_rewrite?

    Thanx!

    Aleks

    FollowSymLinks needs to be enabled for the mod_rewrite to work.
