Script execution problem

    I'm moving customer accounts over from an old server running a competitor's control panel (H-Sphere). Problem is, several clients are running replication software ( on their sites, and on the new server running cPanel, the required script that shows the replicated pages cannot be executed in the public_html directory.

    One of the requirements to run the software is the have the following in the public_html directory .htaccess file:
    Options +ExecCGI
    AllowOverride All

    In the error log for a customers site shows this:
    /home/global7s/public_html/.htaccess: AllowOverride not allowed here

    When browsing the site, an HTTP 500 - Internal server error comes up.

    There's a function in the old hosting control panel that I'm moving from that allows scripts (any that are added) to be run and the directory residing can act as a cgi-bin directory. The replication software worked like a charm.

    Any suggestions to get around this or a fix? Is there something in Apache or cPanel that can allow this?
