    hello,
    Does Better WP Security make changes to the WordPress htaccess file please?
    When I tried to logon to he wordpress admin panel this morning I got this message:
    > Internal Server Error
    >
    > The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    >
    > Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@epsiloniom.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
    >
    > More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
    >
    > Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request
    >
    > Also I received about 6 emails of this type this morning which is very concerning:

    attempts. You may login to the site to manually release the lock if necessary.

    My server host has since resolved the problem and advised that I uninstall the plugin to prevent it happening again, can you comment please?

    Hello sir,

    Yes, for improving website security, this plugin will make necessary changes on .htaccess file.

    A 500 internal server error may happen if your website try to use more memory than allowed by your webhost. As far as I know, these features use lots of memory, you may need to consider to disable them:
    - Database Backup
    - File Change Detection

    To prevent it happening again:
    - You can uninstall the plugin, but I don't suggest you to do it
    - Disable the "Database Backup" and "File Change Detection"

    Good luck!
