Hello,

is possible to allow symlinks "Option +FollowSymlinks" for certain cpanel user or directory only and for rest users globally disable that (in PHP Global Configuration can be globally diabled/enabled)?

Thank you

Hello :)

You could try enabling it through the account's .htaccess file depending on how you disabled it globally. I suggest reviewing the following thread:

Thank you.
