I have reinstalled BPS security plugin after moving to another web host. In addition, I have checked BPS security info, permalinks are enabled and it's running PHP5.
However there're some problems in WP dashboard:
1. I can't change any settings in WP dashboards - change Buddypress settings, password, drag widgets in widget area, etc. All the attempts will lead to an error page:
example url and message -
403 Permission Denied
You do not have permission for this request /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-general-settings
2. I will be directed to the setting page that I have locked off from WP dashboard when I log in. For example, if I log off from WP dashboard widget settings area, then I will be directed to the widget setting page when I log in. This is something unusual as no matter which setting page I log off from WP dashboard, I should be directed to the main WP dashboard page.
Are these problems due to the no-present of .htaccess in wp-admin folder? The following are the red messages in BPS status:
NO .htaccess file was found in your /wp-admin folder
Your Current wp-admin .htaccess File is NOT backed up yet
