Webwork 2 Installation

I've used Webwork previously, but after upgrading our server Webwork no longer works.  We're running Fedora 6 with Apache 2.2.4.

I've been working on installing Webwork 2.3.2 and everything went okay until I got to Configuring Apache.  Everything seemed to be working (no errors) until after editing the file webwork.apache2-config .  After including the line

Include /opt/webwork/webwork2/conf/webwork.apache2-config 
in my httpd.conf file, I was unable to restart the apache server.
I keep getting the following error message and I'm clueless as to 
figure out what's wrong:
[root@newton conf]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 29 of /opt/webwork/webwork2/conf/webwork.apache2-config:
$parms->add_config() has failed: Option FollowSymLinks not allowed here at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Apache2/PerlSections.pm line 210.\n

Can anyone please help me out.  Thanks.

I was looking for the installation help forum and couldn't find it, but stumbled accross the solution while googling.


This appears to have resolved my problem.
