I have Apache 2.4.23 when i change from Apache 2.3 to match Apache of my server and try to do .htaccess Tweaks get 500 Internal Server Error, how to solve this issue?

Hi,

First option on the .HTACCESS panel is too choose Apache version. Most Apache servers 2.4 and newer use compatibility module so that old rules will work. But, your server seams to lack that module, so you need to switch Apache version in the plugin to generate rules for that version. If that doesn’t work, check with your hosting company to identify what rules are causing problem (there were many Apache changes, and it is not easy to test them all). Apache 2.4 support in the plugin is experimental (as noted in the settings), but it should be working fine (I use it on my server).

I am running dedicated server, other thing is google is giving this error when trying to crawl the sitemap I do believe it is because of the changes made to the htaccess file
Network unreachable: Network unreachable HTTP Error: 503 !!!!! this is not server issue there is something making the site not reachable to google after installing that plugin

Can you check with your hosting to determine which .htaccess rule is causing error? Also, try to switch back to old Apache in the settings, and save rules to .htaccess again.

If you have problems doing that, manually remove all rules added by plugin from .htaccess (they are marked with BEGIN/END and plugin name lines).

Hello, does it work on any hosting company??

.htaccess hardening is process of adding security rules into .htaccess file. This file is Apache only, so if server is not on Apache, these tools will not work. There are extra addons for the plugin, and one of them (Firewall) replaces bunch of .htaccess tools with firewall rules that work on any server type.

Hello again. I think my db its re.infecting my website. Will this plug in help me on this?

No. This plugin is used to protect your website from security related incidents. If you are infected already, you need to find and clean the infection first. There are so many infection methods, and in most cases, you need to manually find and restore problematic files. I doubt that DB is reinfecting your website, you need to have infected PHP files for that.

How well does it work against pharma hacks?

I am not sure what types of hacks you are referring to exactly, but plugin doesn’t have the tools to cleanup infected website. If your website is infected, and files hacked, this plugin is not for you. If you have clean website, this plugin can protect you against wide range of attacks using combination of various tools.
