Solve WP Super Cache + Autoptimize Internal Server Errors

Yesterday I noticed my autoptimized JS-files were returning an internal server error (CSS worked as that is inlined). My Apache error-log had this entry:

[Tue Oct 13 17:23:42 2015] [alert] [client 178.xx.xx.xx] /var/public_html/blog.futtta.be/wp-content/cache/.htaccess: Option Indexes not allowed here

/var/public_html/blog.futtta.be/wp-content/cache/.htaccess is created by WP Super Cache, which got updated recently, a.o. to disable indexes being created of directories, and the .htaccess indeed read;

# BEGIN INDEX
Options -Indexes
# END INDEX

The solution? I could have edited WPSC’s .htaccess, but my changes could get overwritten there whenever Donncha would feel like it, so in the end I edited my site’s config in Apache;

<directory /var/public_html/blog.futtta.be>
AllowOverride All
</directory>

And all is well now.
