this is very surprising to me, but I have no htaccess file in my root folder. I know there was one from day 1, when I first installed WP. And surely in my last backup folder from 2 months ago (when I didn't use BWPS yet), I can see one, but my site has none at the moment.
Is it possible that BWPS removed it?
There's no problem with the site though, everything works fine, but I started to get reports about some IPs being locked out for repeatedly trying to excess nonexistent files. That prompted me to tighten the security a bit. In the process BWPS asked me to paste long list of code into htaccess file. That's when I found I have none.
Should I create new file and paste new code in it? Is there a chance this might cause some trouble, since site works just fine without any htaccess?
I'll appreciate any help.
