That is for the default permissions of ehat you'll allow. You don't need to touch that in this instance. You can just leabe it at:

I am having a problem with apache and authentication.
I have configured my apache correctly and have this configuration in the access.conf file :
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
allow from all
You also should know that the area you do need to modufy (either the virtual host or the <Directory /home/*/public_html> part, that if you specify what you want, it will result in assuming you don't want anything else. You should add +OptionNameHere, rather than OptionName's listed in the Options durective.
You should uncomment the following:
AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
<Limit GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND>
Allow from all
You should have all the options you need there, but you can add more or ne more specific. If you have clients on this system and it's not your own, you should really restrict what they can do with their .htaccess file anyway (for control and protection (albeit not anything horrible to do without)), but I won't get into that here.
