Hi all,

Before you start with the tutorial, make sure to back up the current .htaccess file. Once you’ve done that, you can start editing your file.

This is the default content of a .htaccess file in a WordPress website.

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress

First, we protect our .htaccess file from unauthorized users.
