  • I’ve recently been getting 500 internal server error messages whenever editing or posting. Reuploading my .htaccess file fixes the problem straight away. Is this a WP problem or should I be speaking to my host about it?

  • It looks like each time I update my blog, it’s appending the WP .htaccess rules to the bottom of my file:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Except that I’ve already included that at the top of the file. It didn’t used to do this so is it a recent change in WP that is causing this? Or is there any configuration option I can select to prevent it?

    try making the htaccess file read only?
