[resolved] [Plugin: Better WP Security] 500 internal server error for wrong .htaccess (4 posts)

    I'm using Better WP Security from months without any problem but this morning I've found a website giving error 500 because

    .htaccess: deny requires at least two arguments, 'from' followed by hostnames or IP-address wildcards

    effectivelly I've found a 'deny from' followed by nothing in .htaccess, and just removing it solved the problem.

    can't understand how it happened, do you check for non empty values when writing to .htaccess?

    I'll let you know if this happens again.

    Thanks for your usefull plugin, anyway.

    All the best

    double check your .htaccess permission settings

    Make sure that the permissions are set at 644
    I have change the settings from 444 to 644
    and right now it is holding solid.
    Still I am not sure if this has solved it.
    I am truly not certain

  4. Please make sure you are using 3.3 of Better WP Security as this issue should have been solved.
