I'm very sorry that you personally had such a hard time figuring out BulletProof Security, but it is irresponsible of you to advise other people not to install BPS because you personally made a mistake. BPS does not deal with or change permissions of any kind. Nor do the .htaccess files in BPS have anything to do with permissions. If you had contacted me directly i would have fixed your mistake in less than 5 minutes and had your site working perfectly and fully protected against hackers. BPS is a very simple plugin that deals with advanced website security, but if you do not follow the simple directions you can cause your site to be inaccessible temporarily. Restoring access to your site is also very simple and should only take a couple of minutes if you make a mistake. So i am not sure why it would take you hours and saying you lost everything and have to start completely over is well... just plain absolutely ridiculous. Thanks.
And i also appreciate the bad vote you cast for BPS. Thanks again.
