[resolved] Litespeed server - Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public (13 posts)

    Hello, when I was on another server, not Apache and not Litespeed, it was working fine.

    Now I have moved to a Litespeed server and the backup folder is visible to the public - yes I tested it and deleted all the backups for security reasons.

    The following message is always showed:

    Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public
    
    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to //wp-content/backup-db

    However the .htaccess is there and it has the right code inside.

    <Files ~ ".*\..*">
    order allow,deny
    deny from all
    </Files>

    maybe litespeed server do not support it? Do you know what I can do?

    oooh, that was working, even if visible the files could not be downloaded. What was missing was the Option -Indexes.

    btw... even if the folder does not show the files and the files cannot be downloaded even having the right path/link, the message "Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public" is still visible :(

    Is your backup path correct? "//wp-content/backup-db" doesnt look correct to me, unless you censor it off

    this is the path. It is the same there was on the previous hosting. http://mysite.com/wp-content/backup-db/

    and if it can help the permissions of the .htaccess in that folder are 0644

    The path looks wrong, if you are using Linux, /home/username/www/wp-content/backup-db/

    I'm having the same message:

    "Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public

    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /home/[myusername]/[mysitedbname]/wp-content/backup-db"

    But I think everything is working fine, and I did moved the file as sugested...

    Why the message is still here?

    Tks!

    if you have access to shell/command prompt/CPanel FTP Browser, check that /home/[myusername]/[mysitedbname]/wp-content/backup-db does indeed exist.

    Hi Lester!

    I used a FTP app to transfer de file as recommended in the message. So, yes, the directory indeed exists, and the file, since I moved it, is there... but I still get the message :-/

    Tks!

    FTP is not the accurate path, you will not see the full path using an FTP software. best is to use SSH

    Hi Lester,

    Please understand that I'm a marketing expert, not IT or programming... so, I really don't know what's SSH ;-)

    Can you give me some specific directions, like a software or something, and what I have to do?

    Thank you again!

    Hmm try visiting http://mysitedbname/wp-content/backup-db/ Are you able to see the folder contents? If not, it is safe and you can ignore the message. To remvoe the message check out the FAQ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-dbmanager/faq/
