Drupal 7.3x and Virtualmin GPL Issues

What happened:

I created a new virtual host and managed it using Virtualmin GPL. Uploaded Drupal 7.31 to the document root and got an internal server error 500.

I investigated the apache error logs and found out this line on tail

.htaccess: Option FollowSymLinks not allowed here


Edited .htaccess and changed

Options +FollowSymLinks

Option +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

It's working now but I'm not sure of the performance impacts as stat-ing the file is theoretically slower now.
