The ‘Options’ directive will no longer return a ‘500 Internal Server Error’ message
Due to security reasons, our web hosting platform does not support the use of the ‘Options’ directive in .htaccess files. If a customer uses ‘Options +FollowSymLinks’ or ‘Options -Indexes’, his website will return a ‘500 Internal Server Error’ message. After a recent update, our hosting platform simply ignores the ‘Options’ directive. This way, even if a customer uses it in an .htaccess file, it won’t result in an error message appearing on his website.
