Hi. Sorry if this has been addressed, but I did a search and didn't find anything. Maybe I used incorrect search terms, I don't know.
Anyway, twice now my .htaccess file, which I have added changes to, has automatically switched back to the default "out of the box" .htaccess. This happened once last week, and once this week. Fortunately, after last week's fiasco, I made a backup copy and was able to easily recover.
Questions - *why* is my .htaccess changing on me? *How* do I stop it from happening in the future?
