Default .htaccess code for WordPress

The default .htaccess code for WordPress is as follows :
==========================
# BEGIN wordpress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_fileNAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_fileNAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END wordpress

========================

Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch forbidden error …

When you get this error while browsing your site :

==========================================================================================
[Fri Jan  8 01:55:09 GMT 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule
directive is forbidden: /home/username/public_html/foldername/403.shtml
==========================================================================================

Just  add the following code in the .htaccess file  :

[email protected][~]#  vi .htaccess

RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymLinks +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
:wq!
=================================
That's all this will do it.
