Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off
« on: August 28, 2008, 09:55:32 AM »
I have recently downloaded my site to my local system but when I browse it on my local system it gives me 403 Forbidden error. Then I have checked Apache logs and found below error:

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

Can someone help me how can I fix this problem?

Thanks,

Scott

The error "Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden" can be fixed by adding below line in your .htaccess file:

Code: [Select]
Options FollowSymLinksYou are getting this error because FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is not on and you can on it using above line. Hope this will fix your problem.
