    Is there a step by step process on how to create a .htaccess for my WordPress site? I'm being told by the web host to create a .htaccess before they will unlock the log in page to my website because of 'brute force' Please make sure it is easy steps since I am not a code expert and did not create the page but am now the admin of the page.
    Please help!

    You may already have an .htaccess file. Are you using custom permalinks?

    I'm sorry I'm not sure what that is?

    What is the address of your site?

    Just looked it up and yes we use permalinks. Some were created when the page was created and I create them when I'm designing new stories for the community page for example

    I guess what I'm trying to do is create a log-in page to get to the admin sign in page for our wordpress site. I'm looking for a step by step process on how to create a log in that will pop up with a username and password before I get to the sign in page for my WordPress site? This is all due to 'brute force' Please make sure it is easy steps since I am not a code expert and did not create the page but am now the admin of the page.
    Please help!

    Is it my system or should there be a link to "Brute Force Attacks" above?

    TIA
