BulletProof Security
[resolved] BPS protection warning -- that seems inaccurate (4 posts)

    We just completed and launched our site (www.facefrontiers.com) and used a very competent coder to make sure it's working properly. However, we and he can't figure out why we are still getting this warning on our dashboard:
    "BPS Alert! Your site does not appear to be protected by BulletProof Security"

    He assures it everything IS working and protected.

    Can you help?

    Thank you

    Did you click the AutoMagic buttons and Activate Root and wp-admin BulletProof Modes?

    If you have done the steps above then check your root .htaccess file on the BPS Edit/Upload/Download page >>> click the Your Current Root htaccess File tab. Do you see any blank spaces or any other code above this text at the top of your root .htaccess file - # BULLETPROOF .48.8 >>>>>>> SECURE .HTACCESS

    Then compare your root htaccess file code to the secure.htaccess file code. Are there any differences? If so, what is different?

    Your Host is BlueHost, but it does not look like you are using Cloudflare so that would not be the problem. There is a known issue where BPS, WPSC and W3TC are not compatible with BlueHost Cloudflare .htaccess code.

    BlueHost uses cPanel so most likely the problem is this very common problem: The cPanel Broken HotLink Protection Tool problem.
