BulletProof Security
[resolved] Not Secure Since Updating to .47.6 (5 posts)

    Just updated to .47.6 and I am now seeing error messages on the dashboard and in the security status section. The message will not clear on refreshing and recreating the files from scratch does not resolve the issue either.

    The htaccess file that is activated in your root folder is:
    BULLETPROOF .47.6 >>>>>>> SECURE .HTACCESS

    Either a BPS htaccess file was NOT found in your root folder or you have not activated BulletProof Mode for your Root folder yet, Default Mode is activated, Maintenance Mode is activated or the version of the BPS Pro htaccess file that you are using is not the most current version or the BPS QUERY STRING EXPLOITS code does not exist in your root htaccess file. Please view the Read Me Help button above.

    wp-config.php is NOT htaccess protected by BPS

    √ Deny All protection activated for BPS Master /htaccess folder
    √ Deny All protection activated for /wp-content/bps-backup folder

    The htaccess file that is activated in your wp-admin folder is:
    BULLETPROOF .47.6 WP-ADMIN SECURE .HTACCESS

    No, never been an issue prior to today's update - BPS had always been running fine previously and continues to do so on other sites I have on the same server, which I have not yet updated.

    Do you have cPanel or some other type of Web Host Control panel?

    So far I am not getting any reports that there is an upgrade problem with BPS .47.6 itself so this is isolated to something with your site.

    Another possibility is you have another plugin installed that uses the WordPress flush_rewrite_rules function incorrectly/inappropriately. Please try these steps below:

    1. Deactivate all of your plugins except for BPS.
    2. Click the AutoMagic buttons
    3. Activate BulletProof Mode for your Root folder.
    4. Lock your Root .htaccess (if your Host allows this)
    5. Activate all of your plugins again.

    Thank you for your assistance, using the steps you describe I was able to uncover the culprit - a conflict with another plugin "special text boxes"( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-special-textboxes/ ).

    BPS now runs fine with the other plugin inactive and I have updated other sites on the same server without any further problems.
