SymLinks Settings of cPanel Linux Hosting packages

Protonhosting.com's 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.
