Thank you for that advice. In fact I had

<Directory /var/www/>
  Options All

I tried to use explicitely followSymlinks, but the issue remains.

Then I did what I should have done initially, which reading apache's error.log in /var/log
The issue was that some directories in the path /home/alain/anciens/anciensecpm.yellis.net/ 
were not world searchable.

Thank you for your time and for your contributions to the linux world.
Have a nice evening,
