Delete htaccess.txt was created by Oneman
It has been years since I've had to make changes. I just changed the htaccess password, closed out, reopened backend with new pw and was locked out. Went via cPanel to the Joomla root directory, deleted the htaccess.txt file, closed all out. Attempted to get on backend with just /administrator and am still locked out. What am I forgetting? I hope someone can help!

Hi oneman,

Why do you want to delete that file? Don't you remember the secret key? Or are you blocked by the firewall?

Anyway you deleting the htacess.txt or the .htacess? The first one it doesn't matter.

Regards,
Jose

Thank you so much! I deleted the .txt file INSTEAD of the plain htaccess! How do I replace the htaccess.txt file? I changed the secret code but it was not working, so that's why I was deleted the htaccess and I can now try it again.

You're welcome!

If there is no .htacess file it will be generated after appling the htacess protection.

If do you want the htacess.txt then you need to upload it again (you can find it into the zipped file of Joomla installation).

Jose

I know it's off topic, but do you know if I need it?
