I am using the symfony web framework.
There is an .htacess file in the web folder which contains the following statement:
Options +FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
According to this page, Apache is more secure if these directives are switched off. Since I am NOT using symbolic links in my website, and I am not running any CGI scripts, I have disabled them in my .htacess file.
I want to know if there are any side effects that I need to be aware of?
