Users love Htaccess Editor for its simplicity and our friendly support. Read more reviews.

Since this plugin does NOT touch the WordPress core, just places a new menu on Admin panel control panel where you can backup, restore and edit your htaccess file faster that FTP back and forth! Great job!

I thought the previous version was pretty darn good but this one is even better. All the changes I wished were made were implemented! Amazing! Kudos to the developer!

FAQ


If you have more questions, please contact us.

Will Htaccess Editor slow down my site?
Absolutely not! Plugin has zero frontend functionality and does not anything to WP that could slow down a site.
Is it WP-MU compatible?

WP-MU compatibility hasn’t been completely tested. But we do have reports from users that everything is working fine. So, please, be carefull.

Is the plugin dangerous?
Plugin itself – no. Plugin in the hands of a user who doesn’t know how to write htaccess directives – a bit. While no data loss can occur if the htaccess file is saved containing an error you’ll have to use FTP to restore an old version of htaccess found in /wp-content/htaccess-editor-backups/.
I don’t understand the point of this plugin
Most WordPress users spend a lot of time in WP admin and like to be able to do everything from it. Including editing the site’s htaccess file. Without our plugin, in order to do that they have to open an FTP connection to the server, download, edit and re-upload the file. With Htaccess Editor everything is done from WP admin.
