Htaccess File Editor


Simple editor htaccess file without using FTP client.
This plugin should be used only by experienced users!


  1. Extract the zip into the wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Admin panel of your WordPress
  3. Go to Menu -> Htaccess


Can create or edit the htaccess file

If your hosting does not allow you to create or modify files on the server, use another (better) hosting 🙂

I edited my htaccess file and now my site does not work

You probably have a syntax error in the file or on the server you are not allowed any of the settings in your htaccess file.
Try to restore the original backup file. If restoration is not possible with this plugin, restore the backup file from the folder “wp-content ” manually.

I opted for this particular version of the htaccess editor plugin rather than the Original "WP Htaccess Editor" because it seems to have a better maintenance cycle and it shows to have been checked-to-work for my current WP version where the Original hasn't updated in 4 years. Also the ads of the original were removed. Not sure if this is a legit - but the plugin works fine and has no ads.
