SymLinks Settings of cPanel Linux Hosting packages
Posted by Madhusudan S on 18 May 2015 07:19:44 PM

Our cPanel Linux Hosting packages do not support the FollowSymlinks option in the .htaccess file. This option has been disabled, as it exposes a vulnerability that could allow a hacker to gain access to other cPanel Linux Hosting package's files and databases.

We instead recommend using the SymLinksIfOwnerMatch option in your cPanel Linux Hosting package's .htaccess file.
