We have a stumper situation and can’t find a solution but we know there has to be one. We have a WordPress site installed on a LAMP stack server and can’t get the Media File Access control to restrict specific files.
We’ve installed AAM on our demo hosted site and it works perfectly in restricting files. Just this afternoon, in desperation, I created a WordPress site on my 1&1.com sandbox webhosting and installed AAM and some files and it restricted them perfectly.
We spent all morning looking at our server configuration. We changed the httpd.conf file to AllowOverride All for the var/www Directory hoping to solve the .htaccess problem, and it still didn’t work.
I’ve seen a very old note about making changes to the .htaccess file through Filezilla causing potential problems with adding Linux line feeds…..??? Is that worth investigating?
Does anyone have any suggestions? If we can’t get AAM to work on our server, our only other option is to create a separate WordPress site with files that we want to restrict and making them only readable from our IP address.
Thanks in advance for any help.
