I am a noob looking for some help. I inherited a website with some Symlinks settings in the .htaccess file but i dont know anything about the. I tried google but I can't figure it out. If anyone can give some help as to what the following is doing I will appreciate it:

# For security reasons, Option followsymlinks cannot be overridden.
#Options +FollowSymLinks
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All -Indexes
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All -Indexes
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All Indexes
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All -Indexes
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All -Indexes
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All -Indexes
# For security reasons, Option all cannot be overridden.
#Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch All -Indexes
Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI  Includes  IncludesNOEXEC  SymLinksIfOwnerMatch  Indexes -Indexes

I realize that every line starting with # is a comment but I'm not sure if there is any other purpose.

The only line that is not commented out is this:

Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI Includes IncludesNOEXEC SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ExecCGI  Includes  IncludesNOEXEC  SymLinksIfOwnerMatch  Indexes -Indexes
