    Changing in service plans does not appear to update all the sites connected to the service plan.

    (Without looking ourselves) is there a CLI that can be used against all sites on the server?

    Hi Richard Anthony Secor,

    Thanks for the question!

    We have the following KB article with instructions on how to manage this option for all domains:

     

    We also added a note to the resolution section of this KB article.

    Rather than NOT restricting the following of symlinks, it is better to modify the .htaccess of the site causing the problem:

    For situations where the error is "Option FollowSymlinks not allowed here", look for a line in .htaccess like this:

    Options +FollowSymLinks

    and replace it with:

    Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

    The replacement option allows symlinks to be followed but only where the owner is the same, which is safe, and does not trigger the error 500.
