WP Htaccess Editor provides a simple, safe & fast way to edit, fix & test the site’s htaccess file from WP admin. Before saving, htaccess file can be tested for syntax errors. It also automatically creates a htaccess backup every time you make a change to the htaccess file. Htaccess backups can be restored directly from the plugin, or via FTP if the errors in htaccess file prevents WP from running normally. Great for fixing htaccess errors. For all questions, including support please use the official forum.
Access WP Htaccess Editor via WP Admin – Settings menu.
Use the “test before saving” button to test htaccess file syntax before saving. Please note that this test does not check the logic of your htaccess file, ie if the redirects work as intended. It only checks for syntax errors. If you need to fix htaccess file we suggest restoring it to the default version and then add custom code line by line.
Htaccess Editor makes automatic backups of htaccess file every time you make a change to it. Backups are located in
/wp-content/htaccess-editor-backups/ and timestamped so you can easily find the latest htaccess backup and restore it.
WP Htaccess Editor is fully compatible and tested with WP Network (WPMU). It shows up under the Settings menu in network admin. It’s not available in individual sites as there is only one htaccess file per network.
The plugin was originally developed by Lukenzi in March of 2011.
Follow the usual routine;
Or if needed, upload manually;
Nothing is lost or deleted. You can easily get your site back.
You’re probably getting an error 500 or a white screen (of death). First connect to your site via FTP and locate the .htaccess file. Delete it, or rename it. Try the site again – it should open. If it did locate the backup of the old, working .htaccess file in
/wp-content/htaccess-editor-backups/ copy the file to your site’s root folder and you’re back in business.
Sorry, we can’t change the file access privileges set by your server. You’ll have to edit the file via FTP.
