    Warning: chmod() [function.chmod]: Operation not permitted in /home/site/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/admin/options.php on line 124
    Warning: copy(/home/site/public_html//.htaccess) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/xxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/admin/options.php on line 126

    What is Server API type?  You will find this information on the B-Core System Info page.  Post your Server API in your reply.

    I have about 30 sites running BPS, thisis the only one right now that is vexing me…

    Server Type: Apache
    Operating System: Linux
    Server API: cgi-fcgi – Your Host Server is using CGI.


    I’m getting the same error. I’ve done this numerous times to different websites on the same server, but I never got this error before.
    Can we get some help?

    Adam had 30 different sites and 29 of them were on another web host.  The 1 particular site where BPS Pro was not working was a customer’s site that was on a web host that is not compatible with BPS Pro due to custom Server configurations done on that Host’s Servers – that Host is Verio.  There are 2 Hosting Companies (out of 1,000’s) that BPS Pro will not work on >>>

    Please post this information below that you will find on the BPS System Info tab page and also post your Web Host name.  Thanks.

    Server Type: Operating System: Server API:
