500 Internal Server Error on GoDaddy.com - no Options All allowed

Getting a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

If you are using GoDaddy.com here's a possible reason why -

You cannot use Options modifier in .htaccess files with GoDaddy.com.

If you are modifying your .htaccess file for security purposes heavily on an Apache Box.

If you getting this 500 Internal Server Error on other web hosting companies or your own Apache Dev box.

Here's a possible work around.

I noticed today that I receive the following error message in each page view error_log get written:
Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden:
/var/www/vhosts/domain.Ca/httpdocs/index.pl, referer: http://www.domain.ca/


The error messages is to get a grip on a previously used by me without any problems possibility of under / etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dir.conf to change the order as in about

   DirectoryIndex at_domains_index.html  index.html index.php index.xhtml 
                  index.htm index.shtml index.cfm
