take a look at /var/www/web10/web/.htaccess and see what is causing that error.

or paste content of that htaccess file but delete info that is not needed if any.

You should edit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, find lines
and change lines AllowOverride to look as mine. Or you can add apache directives in apache (optional ) text box of website in panel if you wish to make only your sites to be able to change .htaccess file. OR simply add allowed options to allow override.
 <Directory /var/www/*/web>
352     Options +Includes -Indexes
353     AllowOverride All
354    # AllowOverride Indexes AuthConfig Limit FileInfo
355     Order allow,deny
356     Allow from all
357     <Files ~ "^\.ht">
358     Deny from all
359     </Files>
360 </Directory>
362 <Directory /var/www/*/user/*/web>
363     Options +Includes -Indexes
364     AllowOverride All
365    # AllowOverride Indexes AuthConfig Limit FileInfo
366     Order allow,deny
367     Allow from all
368     <Files ~ "^\.ht">
369     Deny from all
370     </Files>
371 </Directory>
