Won't let me block IP (3 posts)

    I was trying to block an IP and it says it can't write to the .htaccess file.

    It says:
    The plugin was unable to write to the .htaccess file. Please edit file manually.

    What do I do?

    What type of server are you on?

    What are the permissions of your .htaccess file and the directory it resides in?
    Have you tried looking on your host to see if there are any logs produced at the server level related to this problem?

    I forgot to also add, can you please check the the AIOWPS log file and tell us what the logs produced are when you try to block the IP?
