Support » Your WordPress » Moving .htaccess

  • Hi There!

    I have this message at the top of my WP admin page:

    Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public
    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /nfs/c01/h02/mnt/34127/domains/martinique.org/html/blog/wp-content/backup-db

    I moved the “htaccess.txt” to the location suggested but nothing has changed.

    Is there another way of moving that file from the WP admin page?

    Thanks!
    boco

    move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /nfs/c01/h02/mnt/34127/domains/martinique.org/html/blog/wp-content/backup-db

    htaccess.txt != .htaccess

    apache is not going to do anything with a file named htaccess.txt

    and neither is wordpress or that plugin/

    the file needs to be named .htaccess .. just like it says, not htaccess.txt not I-want-to-call-this-whatever-i-want.txt

    how many posts on this forum could be spared if folks just read the instructions.

    I blame bill gates.
