FAQ

Can create or edit the htaccess file

If your hosting does not allow you to create or modify files on the server, use another (better) hosting 🙂

I edited my htaccess file and now my site does not work

You probably have a syntax error in the file or on the server you are not allowed any of the settings in your htaccess file.
Try to restore the original backup file. If restoration is not possible with this plugin, restore the backup file from the folder “wp-content ” manually.

Reviews

Works great

I needed to change .htaccess on the installation I had no FTP access and this plugin worked fine.

Still works for WordPress 4.5

Since this plugin does NOT touch the WordPress core, just places a new menu on Admin panel control panel where you can backup, restore and edit your htaccess file faster that FTP back and forth! Great job!
