BulletProof Security
[resolved] default.htaccess file (11 posts)

    Just activated and clicked Create default.htaccess file

    Method Not Implemented

    POST to /wp-admin/admin.php not supported.

    I "think" it it that a directory isn't writeable. If so, what is the numeric setting and do I turn it back to what it was? Ant]y other directories that need to be changed?

    Most likely this has to do with mod_security. Check with your web host and ask them about this.

    WTF? I hit "submit" ONCE!

    My host says to give them details of .htaccess and they will do it. I said thanks but the script had to write other files so please turn it off.

    We shall see

    Is mod_security closed until it initially writes those two files or always? My host said

    "If you let us know the plugin, we can check the .htaccess file to see what it needs to add manually. We can not turn off mod security for security reasons"

    mod_security can be configured with SecFilters and/or SecRules, which are very similar to .htaccess filters/rules. So yeah send them a link to BPS so they can install and test it.

    I have mod_security installed on a XAMPP testing site and out of the box there are not any issues or conflicts with mod_security default SecRules/SecFilters, but if additional/custom SecRules/SecFilters are added to mod_security then one or more of those SecFilters or SecRules could be blocking/conflicting with BPS filters/rules.

    I explained the script writes to it each time I ban so I need access. We'll see what they say. If they refuse ... I am up the creek

    Did you here back from your Host Support on this issue?

    They are firm. I asked for a way around it but there is nothing. I wanted to use your plugin but am afraid I can't.

    :(
