Is it possible to disable hotlink protection using just FTP?
My license is expired currently and we are working on fixing it, but I need hotlink protection disabled for a project i'm working on, is it possible to do it manually using ftp?

Hello,

You can download the .htaccess file from the website's document root (e.g. /home/username/public_html/.htaccess), remove the rewrite rules associated with Hotlink Protection (e.g. RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} entries), and then upload the saved .htaccess file back to the account.

Thank you.
