Wordpress overwrites and wipes out custom htaccess rules and changes soluton



cat .htaccess

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php [L]


I keep reading there is a "# BEGIN WordPress" and a "# END WordPress" in the wordpress htaccess above but there is clearly not.
Even more strange is that my permissions are just 444 (read only).


so i changed it to this (but it still gets wiped out)
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://areebyasir.com/$1 [R=301,L]

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

# END WordPress





RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://areebyasir.com/$1 [R=301,L]


#no matter what it just somehow replaces with this default file:

-r--r--r-- 1 apache apache 153 Jul 9 2017 .htaccess

Solution the format must be exactly like below:

Substitute your rules in bold below with whatever rules you want to add.

As you can see above if you don't do the ifmodule part it will not work.


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]


# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

# END WordPress
