Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » [Plugin: Better WP Security] wp-admin access lost on add-on domains

  • Hi guys,

    Hope you can assist.

    I have seen others with similar problem but no solution yet posted.

    I use better Wp security and am super happy with it on my existing root site and 3 add-on domains. I have hidden backends on all 3 etc.

    I have now recently added 2 more add-on domains and installed wordpress on them. Unfortunately if I go to these new add-on sites Domainname/wp-admin it redirects me to the sites homepage. It does not bring up the wp login page.

    If I deactivate better WP plugin it does and all works fine. But I want to keep the plugin!!!!

    What must I change / security must I relax on the plugin in order to allow me access to the new add-on domains wp-admin so I can login etc as normal?

    Any help appreciated.

  • Have you tried resaving the hide backend settings on the primary domain? You should only need these rules on a single domain if I’m reading this correctly…

    I had problems logging to my sites, added as Addon Domains, too.
    My host helped me by adding to .htaccess :

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    and it worked but later on I couldn’t log to my main website -_-
    Then I have disabled Enable Hide Backend to all sites, kept the above code and things worked well after that.
