    Hi BPS,

    I had the file ( auto_.htaccess ) which keep on being quarantine. I don’t know what file was that, and should i restore it back? The error message is as below :

    [Root File AutoRestore Logged: November 27, 2015 10:57 am]
    Quarantined Filename: Root .htaccess file renamed to auto_.htaccess
    Quarantine Path: /home4/alexwong/public_html/sabahtrade.com/wp-content/bps-backup/quarantine/root-files/auto_.htaccess
    Restore Path: /home4/alexwong/public_html/sabahtrade.com/.htaccess

    Looking forward for your guide.
    Thanks.

    Do you have a DSO or CGI Server API/Type?  You can find that information on the BPS Pro System Info page under Server API:.

    Ok now do these steps and let me know if the root htaccess file (auto_.htaccess) is quarantined again.

    1. Go to the B-Core > htaccess File Editor tab page > click the Lock htaccess File button > click the Turn On AutoLock button.
    2. Go to the BPS Security Modes page and click the Root Folder BulletProof Mode Activate button.

    Hi,
    Should I restore the auto_.htaccess first before i proceed to the steps you mentioned above? Thanks.

    No, just do the steps above and let me know what happens.

    Hi BPS,
    I did as what guided, for the few minutes and hours it didn’t appear anymore.(sounds good yeh) Then the next day, I type my domain and it appear to have some code behind: com/?v=7443eca7ab02 That’s pretty good security i guess and was it from BPS? which function was that? Thanks.

    Glad to hear the Root htaccess file quarantine problem is fixed.  There is nothing in BPS that does this:  ?v=7443eca7ab02 so that is being done by something else.

    Same problem as the original poster. WPEngine hosting and getting auto_.htaccess file going to quarantine every few minutes. In post #26666 you mentioned:

    1. Go to the B-Core > htaccess File Editor tab page > click the Lock htaccess File button > click the Turn On AutoLock button.
    2. Go to the BPS Security Modes page and click the Root Folder BulletProof Mode Activate button.

    Did the BPS Pro dashboard change since you posted this? I don’t see a “Lock htaccess File button” anywhere in the B-Core > htaccess File Editor tab page.

    Server Type: Apache
    Operating System: Linux
    WP Filesystem API Method: direct
    Server API: apache2handler DSO Host Server Type

    @ armintz – The Lock htaccess File button & Turn On AutoLock button are only displayed for CGI server types and not DSO server types.  DSO server types do not allow you to use 404 file permissions for htaccess files or any files.  You can either try to figure out what is causing the root htaccess file to be autorestored and quarantined repeatedly or you could try something very advanced and complicated for your DSO server type in this forum topic:  https://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/allow-404-file-permissions-for-htaccess-files-dso/  Send me the auto_.htaccess file code that is quarantined the next time it is quarantined and also send me your current active root htaccess file code so I can compare the code:  info at ait-pro dot com.

    My secure .htaccess file is being renamed auto_.htaccess and quarantined. I have four sites on this server and only one of my sites is renaming the .htaccess.
    Thesis theme 2.2
    WP 4.7.3
    Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.

    @ Chris Moon – The auto_.htaccess file is a copy of your root .htaccess file that is renamed from .htaccess to auto_.htaccess so that it is treated as a plain file and is not executed/processed by your server/website.  Do the steps below to lock to your Root htaccess file.

    1. Go to the B-Core > htaccess File Editor tab page > click the Lock htaccess File button > click the Turn On AutoLock button.
    2. Go to the BPS Security Modes page and click the Root Folder BulletProof Mode Activate button.
