First off: My host provides me with two directories:
1- /usr/home/(account name)
2- /usr/www/users/(account name)/(domain directory)
I placed my web files in the home directory, and created a symbolic link to access the directory that should be accessible to the public (I'm using symfony, so that's a single directory - called web).
With this set up I get an "Access Forbidden" error. So I added a .htaccess file in my domain directory (/usr/www/users/(account name)/(domain directory) i.e. it's in the same folder as my symbolic link).
I now get an Internal Server Error, which I can't seem to brush off. The contents of my .htaccess file are:
AddType application/x-httpd-php5cgi .php
Allow from All
Note: I used to have a passwd file in my web directory, which I removed in the hope of fixing the Access Forbidden problem.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
