    Hello –

    I’m getting a warning message within a backup plugin that “HTTP Loopback Connections are not enabled on this server or are not functioning properly.” 

    I noticed that within the Root Custom Code section (12. CUSTOM CODE BPSQSE BPS QUERY STRING EXPLOITS:), I have the following line:

    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (localhost|loopback|127\.0\.0\.1) [NC,OR]

    Could this be causing the warning? If so, what would be the risk of commenting it out?
    Thanks, Pete

    Yep, that security rule could be blocking a loopback request.  Try commenting it out and see if that works or not.  Make sure to do that in BPS Custom Code too if that works.  That is not a critical security rule.  So it is fine to comment it out.


    Will do. Thanks for such a speedy response!
