ZigHtaccess

Description

A simple .htaccess file editor that lets you edit your .htaccess file from the WordPress admin console and makes a backup each time you save changes. Has been tested on Apache server on Linux, MacOS and Windows.

Minimum requirement: WordPress 4.8 running on PHP 5.6 or later. Also compatible with ClassicPress.

To use, go to Admin > Tools > ZigHtaccess. You must be an administrator-level user to access the plugin’s editor page.

If you find this plugin useful, please consider adding a positive review on the plugin’s repository page.

If you make changes and end up being locked out of your site’s admin pages, you will need to FTP in to your site and delete the .htaccess file at root level (the one in the same folder as your wp-config.php file). You can then copy the backup .htaccess file from the wp-content/zightaccess folder to replace it. Your FTP client must be set to show hidden files. We recommend FileZilla.

NOTE: This plugin is offered without any kind of warranty, promise or guarantee, and the plugin author bears no responsibility for any problems or loss of code or data incurred as a result of using this plugin. By installing this plugin you are agreeing to this condition.

Installation

Go to Admin > Plugins > Add New and enter ZigHtaccess in the search box. Click Install then Activate.

Very useful for tweaks to a live .htaccess file without having to mess around with downloading and uploading it.
