Django... One, no wait, two more things

Django has a load of admin files that need to be accessible. Rather than have the folder accessible as a standard folder I wanted to use a symlink inside the public_html folder. With the default Arch mod_userdir settings though, symlinks aren't followed unless the dir is owned by the user. This won't work though so a change to the Options is needed

Options FollowSymLinks  

That needs to exist instead of the SymLinksIfOwnerMatch option.

The other thing is the fcgi file. By default you won't be able to run it within the public_html folder. To fix this add ExecCGI to the options section as well.
