Apache Options +FollowSymLinks and SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

Today was #sysadmin day and I learned something about Options +FollowSymLinks in Apache Webserver: If you install SugarCRM 6.5.22 and the installation is fine but directly after you get a „500 internal server error“ then there might be a problem in your .htaccess file.

My provider www.variomedia.de was so kind to explain to me that a SugarCRM option in the .htaccess is outdated and should be replaced as follows: Happy surfing

Old: Options +FollowSymLinks
New: Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
