  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Question: Will jamroom be affected if the below code is commented out - what does it do?


    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.
  • Use Jamroom Hosting to have the best possible performing jamroom site without the setup hassle. It also includes the paid modules for free.
