SID-02291: Securing Attachments without twiki.conf?

Status: Asked Asked TWiki version: 6.0.2 Perl version: 5.10.1
Category: CategorySecurity Server OS: CentOS 6, kernel 3.12.65-188.ELK6.x86_64 Last update: 1 year ago

I'm using shared hosting, so I do not have root access and therefore cannot use twiki.conf. SecuringFileAttachments doesn't explicitly address using .htaccess, though it appears there might have been a mod_rewrite method in a previous version. The question http://www.twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Support/SID-00721 seems to be the same issue, but possibly incomplete. I attempted to use it, and was promptly rejected by Apache because of "Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks" Is there a best practice to secure file attachments without root access?
