    I am installing bullet proof pro on new site but see this security warning

    An htaccess file was NOT found in your blogs.dir uploads folder.
    The /blogs.dir/.htaccess file is created automatically unless your Server type requires that you create this file manually. If you need to create the blogs.dir Uploads Folder BulletProof Mode manually you can do this on the Security Modes page.

    How shall I resolve it.

    Also I cant see the option Pro-Tools cURL Multi Page Scanner:

    UPDATE:  Things have changed with Network/Multisite regarding the blogs.dir folder.  See the link below.

    This might be because you do not have a blogs.dir folder.  Please check and let me know if this folder actually exists.  It does not exist by default and you need to create it on new Network/Multisite installations.

    Please explain this in more detail – “Also I cant see the option Pro-Tools cURL Multi Page Scanner:” I am not sure what you mean.

    Yes you are right.blogs.dir folder doesnt exists.

    I have to create it.

    By Pro-Tools cURL Multi Page Scanner I mean the Additional Whitelist Tools that allows Multi page cURL Scan

    What version of BPS Pro do you have installed?  The Pro-Tools cURL Multi Page Scanner was created in BPS Pro 5.7.  If you are installing an older version of BPS Pro then it will not have the cURL Multi Page Scanner tool in it.

    I manually created blogs.dir folder but in security modes section it shows

    http: //xxxx.com/wp-content/uploads/.htaccess –&– /UPLOADBLOGSDIR

    In all other sites it shows like this

    http: //xxxx.com/wp-content/uploads/.htaccess –&– /wp-content/blogs.dir
    Copies the file uploads.htaccess to your /uploads folder and renames the file name to just .htaccess

    If this is for the Caribean site then I assume this is because you had a very old version of BPS Pro installed and there may have been a bug in that version.  BPS Pro has been upgraded to 5.7.2 on this site and the other user mistake was fixed.

    or if this is for another website then please check the WordPress Codex pages on how to setup Network/Multisite sites.

    It is another site.

    blogs.dir was not created during multisite set up.So I created after installing bullet proof plugin.

    Now it shows like this under “Activate Uploads Anti-Exploit Guard htaccess Security Mode”

    http: //caricrafts.com/wp-content/uploads/.htaccess –&– /UPLOADBLOGSDIR
    Copies the file uploads.htaccess to your /uploads folder and renames the file name to just .htaccess

    Do you need to do something with your wp-config.php file?  Do you have the latest version of BPS Pro installed? Are you using the correct [obsolete-removed] buttons?

    I am not a Network/Multisite expert so I can only take logical guesses at what the issue/problem might be.

    Issues with old WPMU installs

    If you installed WordPress MU in subfolder/subdirectory (not in root folder on your server via ftp) and you have problem with image library, where thumbnails and images do not show, you may need to manually add in rewrite rules for your file directories as follows:
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?siteN/files/(.+) wp-content/blogs.dir/N/files/$2 [L]
    Try searching the WordPress Network/Multisite Forum and if you do not find an answer then post this question in the Network/Multisite forum.
