Deleting .htaccess ?

Recommended Posts

I'm having problems with mod_security on my SMF forum, I have a few members who get access errors when posting, but the fixes I've found just break the whole site.

 

If I delete the www root .htaccess file will that cause me big problems?

It can. What else do you have installed besides SMF?

What were the mod_security problems you were getting ? It may not be affected by the .htaccess, depending on what they were. I'd suggest opening a ticket and giving as much detail as possible, we'll take a look at it.

I'm using the .htaccess TCH set, I have tried

 

<IfModule mod_security.c>

# Turn off mod_security filtering. SMF is a big boy, it doesn't need its hands held.

SecFilterEngine Off

 

# The below probably isn't needed, but better safe than sorry.

SecFilterScanPOST Off

</IfModule>

 

and the fix on this forum, but I get a 500 error, it only seems to be a few users having the problem, so i'm at a loss as to how to solve it.
