.htaccess Path Settings

Wordpress LScache Plugin: .htaccess Path Settings

Hi, My sites address, lets say it is https://www.mysite.com. The WordPress files are residing in an directory one level down. We can call the directory shop. The absolute path to the root of my installment is: /user/public_html/ The root only contains the index.php and the .htaccess file. The wordpress files are placed here: /user/public_html/shop/ by using this setup for WordPress. Giving WordPress Its Own Directory Method II. By using the method II from the link above the URL are rewritten by the .htaccess so the visible url in the browser for the visitor is https://www.mysite.com (not https://www.mysite.com/shop/) I am using the Litespeed plugin. When the plugin writes to the .htaccess file, it writes to this file /user/public_html/shop/.htaccess But that .htaccess is overridden by the .htaccess in the root. So the plugin should write to /user/public_html/.htaccess I have found the Toolbox-Edit .htaccess settings where there is .htaccess Path Settings for Frontend .htaccess path Backend .htaccess path Problem is, whatever I put in these fields and save the settings, I receive a 403 error. Could you please explain how to use these settings? As it is now, I have to manually copy the code the plugin puts in /user/public_html/shop/.htaccess (where it have no effect) to the root .htaccess file /user/public_html/.htaccess All the best M This topic was modified 2 years ago by Argentum. Hi, frontend path set to /user/public_html/.htaccess backend to be /user/public_html/shop/.htaccess 403 error is probably due to your mod_security or security plugin as when it detects .htaccess in request body or header, it will likely block it Best regards, Thank you. That was my guess too. If I manage to disable the security thing, will the plugin change both .htaccess files from the two different path settings? Hi, By design , yes , it will sync/update the both .htaccess when necessary Best regards,
