Bug#421901: apache2 ignores +includes directive if it is first on options line

[Robin Cornelius]
> On an apache2 directory configuration the following does not work any more:-
> <Directory /var/www2/sites/test.hirst-magnetics.com/>
>                 Options +Includes Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews 

From http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/core.html#options:

   Mixing Options with a + or - with those without is not valid
   syntax, and is likely to cause unexpected results.

(Oddly enough, this sentence was removed from the 2.2 version of that
file, but the rest of the text remains, and it still seems to imply the
same thing.)

You should use a line like one of these, depending on the intended
meaning - I'm not sure which one you actually want:

   Options +Includes +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
   Options Includes Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
