I'm using Joomla 4. In the configuration, URL-Rewrite is set to yes. I think that's what caused this line:

Return 403 Forbidden header and show the content of the root home page RewriteRule. * Index.php [F]

Now I have a problem that cron jobs can no longer be accessed.

The URL .../index.php?Option=com_acym&ctrl=cron is redirected to the home page. Is there a possibility to define an exception so that the access from outside works exactly under this URL, although index.php appears in it?

The correct form of a url is index.php?option=com_thingy&task=function.controller

For cron jobs try out the new CLI Console method - there are several examples on the Joomla 4 Tutorials page.
