    It continues to be a major PITA that one site, BPS Pro continually attempts to replace the current htaccess with a new one with spaces between some of the lines, which then gets quarantined. So we are forever deleting hundreds of quarantine records all trying to replace this htaccess file. Over the years, after some updates sit stops and after others it starts again.

    Try locking your Root htaccess file to prevent other plugins and themes from “flushing” (doing a wp rewrite flush) or writing to your Root htaccess file.

    1. Go to the BPS Pro > B-Core > htaccess File Editor tab page
    2. Click the Lock htaccess File and Turn On AutoLock buttons.

    If you cannot lock your Root htaccess file due to web host restrictions/limitation or for some other reason then another option that you can use to solve this recurring problem is to exclude the Root htaccess file from being checked by AutoRestore|Quarantine.

    1. Go to AutoRestore > Add|Exclude Other Folders & Files > Exclude Folders & Files.
    2. Select Exclude an Individual File option.
    3. Enter the path to your Root htaccess file.  Example: /xxxxx/public_html/xxxxx/.htaccess
    4. Click the Exclude button.
