  • Use FTP or your host’s File Manager to rename your .htaccess file. It’s a hidden file so make sure viewing hidden files is enabled. If that works, you’ll know it is something in your .htaccess file. Keep in mind that your site probably uses other legitimate code in your .htaccess file though. WordPress permalinks, for example, use the .htaccess file.

    There’s a good chance that a theme or plugin you installed changed your .htaccess file and messed it up. Try deactivating plugins too.

    I did that , i renamed the file but it showed me a 404 error , redirecting me to the bluehost

    Maybe some steps i can do to fix my .htaccess ….I have no plugins on my site cause i deleted them ….:(

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thnx , now everything was OK after i reinstalled the theme…But if i delete the pages that the theme had with the installation pack the same thing happened….
    Anyway thnx :)…i will not delete the pages , just rename them so i will be ok
