HTAccess Protection Items turned off was created by azurelinksc
Hi Jose,
This is weird, but every so often when I'm checking a site's .htaccess protection in Securitycheck Pro, various items which were protected are set to no and the green bar is not displaying meaning it hasn't been applied to the .htaccess file. What might be the cause of this?
The Malware scan doesn't reveal anything.

Hi azurelink,

That means the .htacess file into root folder has been modified. Did the file integrity report any change? Did you do any change in the server like changing PHP version? Sometimes that overwrite the .htacess.

Regards,
Jose

Yes, for the site in question I did change the PHP version from 7.1.x to 7.3.23. And this site does use Multiphp Manager so it does add PHP handler code to the htaccess file. Would that disable SCP?

If the file was overwritten then yes, it disables all .htacess protection features like backend protection, security headers and so.
