[Resolved] [Plugin: BulletProof Security] Bulletproof Security Took Down Main Site
I installed Bulletproof Security (BPS) on 3 different blogs today and all worked great apart from 1 where the blog was installed in sub-directory and was a small part of a larger PHP driven e-commerce site. After activating BPS, the main site became inaccessible and just hung and eventually timed out. This was quite worrying as you can imagine and I had no idea why a WordPress plugin was affecting anything other than WP itself.
Eventually, after a lot of panicking I found that deleting the .htaccess files in WP root an /wp-admin directories solved the problem. Why were these affecting the root (non WP) directory? Also, are there any other locations inside or outside of WP that I should delete .htaccess files from? I’m worried that even thought everything seems to be running ok that some parts of our main (money) site may still be affected by changes that BPS made…
Thanks in advance for your advice.
