    Hi Folks,

    I am using ithemes on a couple of pages – great plugin btw!
    Now my provider WP-Engine stops the .htaccess support with end of 10/22.

    Can I still use all of the ithemes functions?

    In fact automatically adding users to the ban-list will not work anymore I guess… how can I solve that?

    In fact Wp-Eninge offers https://wpengine.com/support/weaab-rules/ now, instead of htaccess, based on nginx… but how to use that for auto-bans?

  • Hi Krenni,

    Please review the What Rules are Enforced by the .htaccess File in iThemes Security Pro? article on the iThemes Help Center.

    Hi @krenni, thank you for reaching out. iTSec will still work as expected except for a few features. Please refer to this article. It is indicated in the article that the Bans and Lockouts will still be executed without the .htaccess file. The other settings that depend on the .htaccess file would need to be manually converted to the WP Engine’s web rules, which, unfortunately, we won’t be able to provide. I hope this answers your question.

    For what it’s worth, WP Engine stopped using the .htaccess file a long time ago.

    Hi @shanedelierrr – thx for ur answer!
    So when I understand you correctly, ithemes will still be able to automatically add users and hosts to a banned list, if they have to many bad login attempts – without using a .htaccess file. Right?

    @krenni, that’s correct!
