Frequently Asked Questions
This line tells Apache you want to support SymLinks - Jamroom uses symlinks for module versioning and updates - this is required for Jamroom to function properly.
These control how the web server works. These options are not required, and can be commented out, however they help make your Jamroom more secure and it is recommended to leave them enabled if you can.
On another server setup reported here by Ken:
My server guy said he had to remove these two files from the .htacess file.....
AddHandler php5-fastcgi .php
Action php5-fastcgi /cgi-bin/php.fcgi
The server meets Jamroom requirements, but I'm not sure if it has this recommended extension. APC (op code caching - speeds up PHP)
....you may have to disable those two .htacess values if this extension is not installed....
