    Setting the .htaccess files the way you recommend disables WP on all my clients and my sites.

    If you're referring to applying our suggested permissions then that might happen, because not all servers are set up the same way, so on one server it might work on others might not.

    As I said, these are our suggestions to improve a better security, but you have to take into consideration your server's capabilities too.

    Yes, I also had this issue. My webserver is setup so that the apache account is not owner of the files.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    "Typically, all files should be owned by your user (ftp) account on your web server, and should be writable by that account. On shared hosts, files should never be owned by the webserver process itself (sometimes this is www, or apache, or nobody user)."
