I run several sites, and they’ve been getting hit by the huge botnet attack that’s been going on for the past month or so.
In two instances the sites have been knocked offline because the htaccess file has become corrupted. It looks like BWPS is overwhelmed trying to add IP numbers fast enough to the ban list. The net result is that anything below the BPWS htaccess block is missing, including the permalink rules and internal server error results.
