    Hello,

    I have noticed that when I update version of cPanel, then date and time of file .htaccess will be changed. Is that correct?

    Hi

    The .htaccess file is edited by the scripts for controlling apache and php settings in EasyApache.

    Depending on which scripts were run then yes, the file may have been edited by the update you installed.

    I had run updates on my servers this morning, and from what see none of the .htaccess files were changed.

    What is the content of the .htaccess file that you think might be compromised ?

    Hello,

    The content of .htaccess file is normal, it seeems to be ok. I have noticed in backup before one month ago that that file was the same. Probably, everything is ok.


    Thank you very much!
