Apache Options error after getting certificate

Hey everyone,
I have a working SSL install of apache 2.4.7 on Ubuntu 13.04 with a self signed certificate
I am running letsencrypt via

~/letsencrypt/./letsencrypt-auto --apache -d myDomain --email myEmail

This has previously retrieved a certificate sucsessfully so I select use the previous certificate

I then get the following error

Error while running apache2ctl configtest.
Action 'configtest' failed.
The Apache error log may have more information.

AH00526: Syntax error on line 11 of /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default_original-le-ssl.conf:
Either all Options must start with + or -, or no Option may.


  • We were unable to install your certificate, however, we
    successfully restored your server to its prior configuration.

I can't open this file default_original-le-ssl.conf as it doesnt exist in the folder i suspect its a temporary file being created by letsencrypt thats getting deleted after the install fails?

Theres not much in my 000-default.conf default-ssl.conf files other than some config details from SSL labs recommendations on which version of ssl to use and ciper selection

I've run apachectl configtest which works with no errors
How can I identify what specifically is the issue?

This was caused by these two lines that should have been in a different file, removing them fixed the issue
