Hello! I'm using the latest version of WP-Filebase and WordPress 3.1. I'm having some trouble with downloads.
My file directory is wp-content/uploads/files. There's an .htaccess file in that directory which says:
Deny from all
I have to change this to "Allow from all" or simply delete both lines before anyone can download anything. Otherwise, several users have reported clicking on something to download and getting a "403 Forbidden" error. I have done this several times, but the .htaccess reverts to "deny from all" every 24 or so hours. Even if I /delete/ the .htaccess file, it reappears the next day. I think that this must be some option in wp-filebase, because I have no other plugins for file uploading OR plugins using that directory. I've tried to set all my wp-filebase options toward allowing people - even unregistered users and soforth - to download things. Users are allowed up to 100 downloads a day, no restrictions as far as I know.
I'm not sure if there's an option or something that I'm missing. If anyone has had a similar experience, please let me know. If not, is there someway I can keep my .htaccess from updating/reverting?
