  • I have the same problem. It seems like the plugin can’t write the .htaccess. I see “SAVING HTACCESS” message with green background, but nothing happens after that and .htaccess is unchanged. Any solutions?

    I have the same problem. Using WP 3.0.1 – have been resorting to manually editing my Htaccess file, which is what this plugin is supposed to make unnecessary.

    there is a bug – most probably a forgotten line from some debugging session – that prevents .htaccess redirection from being configured

    edit /modules/htaccess.php, find the line 268 that has die(“SAVING HTACCESS”); and comment it out (or delete), so the result should be like that:

    function save ($filename, $name)
    {
      // die("SAVING HTACCESS");
      $text = $this->generate ($name);

    that used to be bug #871 on old tracker… so thanks to whoever fixed it first 🙂

    Thanks! It took me a while before I found this post, but this fixed it.

    Please note that after performing this code fix, you have to delete and recreate all your redirects for them to work.

    btw, it is /models/htaccess.php, not /modules/htaccess.php

    Now fixed in version 2.2.3
