Well, I'm finally getting back to this issue as I near the launch of my blog.
I must admit some confusion still about implementing AskApache. Earlier I had temporarily deactivated it and went on to working on other things. It's now upgraded to 4.3.2. When I activated it again now, I'm still getting errors on:
plain encryption capability
It was suggested above that the .htaccess file in the wp-adm directory be deleted in order to resolve these errors. However, there is no .htaccess file in the wp-admin folder. (I do have hidden files set to be visible in my FTP program.)
This website is a subdomain of my main website. There's a .htaccess file and a .htpasswda1 file in the root folder of this subdomain (both dated today, around the time I activated AskApache).
And there's a .htaccess file one level above this subdomain (with a May date on it). Is this one maybe causing the errors? If so, is there any reason I should be concerned about deleting it?
I think I'd like to get this plugin working, although I'm really not sure. Can someone give some guidance about the "necessity" of using this plugin, as well as some input on how to correct these errors?
I do appreciate any help. Thanks.
