How to fix .htaccess warning? (1 post)

    Posted 4 years ago #

    I just set up Updraft for the first time and I am getting this message on the Admin screen in relation to the on-site Updraft backup folder:

    Backup directory specified is accessible via the web. This is a potential security problem. Enable .htaccess support to allow Updraft to automatically deny web access.

    Does this mean I should add something like this to the .htaccess file in the Updraft directory?

    <Directory /path/to/diretcory>
    order allow,deny
    deny from all

    Or is there something else that is being asked for?

    It would be good if there were better instructions for this.
