BulletProof Security
[resolved] Getting a variety of .htaccess update errors (4 posts)

    Just updated BPS to version .47.8
    Also just updated WordPress to 3.5.1
    I am hosting the site on my own server.
    I am getting the persistent messages you noted in the cPanel issue.

    Here is a group of errors that I am getting in the Edit/Upload/Download page.

    All files in question exist and have permissions of 644 or 755.

    I recently changed the owner of these files. Does this matter?

    Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

    For DSO configured Servers you will need to do these additional steps >>> http://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/dso-setup-steps-bulletproof-security-free/

    Hi Thanks for your quick response!

    I made the changes and that removed the errors. Thanks!

    I was still getting the upgrade alerts no matter how much I refreshed.

    I had to activate bulletproof mode on both the root and ap-admin directories to get the big alert boxes to go away, but they're gone.

    Thanks.

    Yep DSO actually blocks write permissions to the .htaccess files from within your WordPress Dashboard so BPS, any other plugin or WordPress itself are not allowed to write to files, unless of course you change the file permissions manually. ;) Thanks for confirming that you got it sorted out.
