IP Deny Manager

Error: while opening /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/.htaccess Error: while opening /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/.htaccess

? Go Back
I can enter these IP addresses in Wordfence - so know they are valid addresses
I get an error of invalid address after I put in the first numbers then the . - then get error Invalid IP
Have I set something incorrectly - since this was working up to 2 days ago when I last entered IP addresses successfully.
Many thanks, Pat

Thank you for your question regarding a Error: while opening mesage. This error is usually caused by invalid permissions on the .htaccess file.

I recommend checking the permissions on the .htaccess file to make sure it is writeable.

If your problems persist, it may be best to contact live support, so they can replicate the error in your account and help troubleshoot further.

If you have any further question, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
