Please do not use all, it is fine to test and see if errors goes away!
If this solves the issue, try figuring out what need to be overridden! 
<-- is this good english ??

this is what i have for owncloud
  AllowOverride Options FileInfo AuthConfig

My whole config for owncloud looks like this.

<Directory "/usr/local/www/owncloud/">
     Options FollowSymLinks Indexes MultiViews
     AllowOverride Options FileInfo AuthConfig
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all
