[Resolved] [Plugin: Better WP Security] How do I revert the Protect Files changes?

  • I selected the Protect Files option for some of my sites and it crashed them all – made them blank and no one could login.

    What are the changes made to the readme.html, wp-config.php, install.php, wp-includes, and .htaccess files? And how do I revert those changes since they seem to be done in the database and permissions?

    Do you provide documentation for this?

  • I’m trying to learn about this as well. I’ve allowed Better Wp Security to have write access to the wp-config.php and .htaccess files, however I can’t figure out how it goes about protecting them.

    Were you able to get an answer to this?

    For that one it only adds the following lines to .htaccess:

    <files readme.html>
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    </files>
    
    <files readme.txt>
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    </files>
    
    <files install.php>
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    </files>
    
    <files wp-config.php>
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    </files>

    The write access option means allowing the plugin to write to .htaccess and wp-config.php or having to do it yourself. (If it’s off it won’t touch them)

    I understand. Thanks for the information bit51!
