    Hello

    After a lot of brute force attacks on several client websites, and repeated admin login blockings through BPS (free), I’ve bought BPS (Pro). Now, the Pre Installation Wizard says “Your current Root .htaccess file is not locked.” The htaccess file has permission 644. Which permission should it have then?

    eehm, I was just asking which permission a root .htaccess file should have?… 🙂

    Thanks in advance

    You can lock your Root htaccess file by going to B-Core > htaccess File Editor > click the Lock htaccess File and Turn On AutoLock buttons.  BPS will change the 644 file permission to 404 file permission for your Root htaccess file.  Note:  If you do not see the Lock htaccess File and Turn On AutoLock buttons then your server type is DSO and the buttons are not displayed on DSO server types since you are not allowed to lock htaccess files on DSO server types.

    List of Web Hosts that require 644 .htaccess file permissions – 404 permissions are not allowed on these Hosts and will cause a 403 Error and or a 500 Internal Server Error – 444 file permissions may be allowed
