    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.
