First of all my domain.com.conf file:

Code:
    DocumentRoot /var/www/domain.com/public_html
    ServerName domain.com
    ServerAlias www.domain.com
    <Directory "/var/www/domain.com/public_html">
      #  Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
        AllowOverride All
      #  Order deny,allow
      #  Allow from all
    </Directory>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =domain.com [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.domain.com
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]
Options FollowSymLinks SymLinksIfOwnerMatch


and this is where I have some question marks! When I have the original config file, the permalinks doesn't work in Wordpress, but when I only add 'AllowOverride All' it's fixed. I guess...

What does all these lines do?
Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
AllowOverride All
Order deny,allow
Allow from all

and what if I remove these lines? Everything works, but is it enough? What does it do? I need some more explanation about these file...

THANKS!!

Hi,

I strongly believe that RTFM is the best option in any case.
- options
- AllowOverride
- Order
- Allow
Although for the latter two and for Apache 2.4, it would be better to use:
- Require

Apache documentation is here: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/en/

# Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
AllowOverride All
# Order deny,allow
# Allow from all

The # disables those lines.

The first one setting the Option to follow the symlink, just as it reads.

AllowOverride all means you can override all settings via .htaccess file.

The last two lines manage the access and it allows all access in the end. However like Otomatic said that is 2.2 syntax. Use Require all granted
