    Have uploaded the AIOS&F plugin and this alert has popped up:

    Would you like All In One WP Security & Firewall to re-insert the security rules in your .htaccess file which were cleared when you deactivated the plugin?

    Should I click ‘Yes or No?’

    I am sure this is a basic instruction but just want to be clear what happens to the site code and security set up once the change has been made.

    A simple answer would be really helpful to a beginner / intermediate wordpress developer.

    Thanks very much
    Mark

    When you enable the firewall rules (and some of the other features), the plugin will write some code in your .htaccess file.
    If you deactivate the plugin from wordpress the plugin will automatically remove any of the code it added to your .htaccess file when it was active.
    Then when you reactivate the plugin, it will ask you whether you want add the code back to the .htaccess file.
    In 99.9% of the time you should click “yes” because that code is instrumental to the protection of your site.
    The only time you would click “no” is when you are having some issues with the functionality of your site and which you suspect may be occurring due some of the .htaccess rules.
