BulletProof Security
[resolved] Broken site. (2 posts)

    I attempted to install the BPS plugin on my site, and promptly got a 500 error and the site went down.

    I panicked and used FTP to delete the plugin and tried to delete any files that had been created by the plugin. The site came back up, but whenever I clicked on a post I would then get a 404 error.

    I ran across this issue and tried adding this code

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    to my site as a file name .htaccess, that seemed to do the trick at first, but then I found a number of small errors on the site.

    I’m not sure what went wrong, or how to get things back to normal.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The .htaccess issue was successfully sorted out with the new file and it turns out simply deactivating and then reactivating all my plugins solved the other issues.

    No idea what went wrong with the original BPS install, but it’s seems that my subsequent issues were a result of my own panicked actions and not the fault of the plugin.

    …apologies for the panicked post : (
