[Resolved] edited htaccess file and now site is down

  • I made a change to my htaccess file. I think I uploaded it and wiped out the old version or I have it in the wrong folder. My site is down. I am using a separate folder for WP at /wordpress/

    This is what I have:
    # -FrontPage-

    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

    <Limit GET POST>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from all
    </Limit>
    <Limit PUT DELETE>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    </Limit>
    AuthName thelightingfactory.net
    AuthUserFile /home/…/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
    AuthGroupFile /home/…/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp

    # BEGIN WordPress

    # END WordPress

    The requested URL … was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I made a change to my htaccess file

    -try reversing those changes

    Ok I fixed it. I just panicked. I had a old htaccess file in there before I was using wordpress. Then I replaced it and I got that error. I copied the htaccess file from another install and all is well.
