Jon, I tried putting SymLinksIfOwnerMatch in there as well as both, and
it didn't resolve it.  I took out SymLinksIfOwnerMatch because it's more
restrictive than just FollowSymLinks .  All files and directories are
owned by brasto:apache , as they were on the old server.  I use apache
for the group because HTTP Server can't write to files it needs to even
though I specify the brasto user, so for files I need it to write to, I
give write access to the group.  It works on the old server, so my
thought is that it should work here as well.

On the second point, I think I tried putting the .htaccess directives in
the <Directory> section, too.  I'll try again to make sure.
