Don’t panic. The WPress Doctor is here. We’re going to fix your hacked website within a couple of minutes. Breathe in, breathe out, because it’s going to be all fine.

In this video we’re going to fix a hacked website. Someone came to me and he said: “I have a website which is really slow. Can you investigate it?” While investigating i stumbled upon really strange things. But the first thing you need to check for me is; if you have backups. If you log into your hosting company and you can restore backups from yesterday, or two days ago, a week ago a month ago, and the hack is gone, that’s perfect! After that you can just install iThemes Security – I made a tutorial about it right here. So you can watch it, install it, and then you’re safe. But in this video I’m going to show you a website that also the backup has been infected with malware and logins… it is amazing. If you want to clean your WordPress website, we’re going to start right now.

So on this dashboard I noticed something strange is going on. The client came to me with a question about some checkout that didn’t work, but on logging in I saw this: ‘WP Rocket could not modify the .htaccess file”. This is not very normal. Also when I try to update this file, I go to a new tab and this is what I see: It is forbidden. This is not pretty normal. So the first thing I want to do is check the .htaccess about what’s happening on this website. How you can do that? You can log in using FTP or you can log into your hosting company and there you can open up the file editor. So let’s do that last one because it’s most easy for everybody. Most hosting use Direct Admin some use Plesk as we have right here, and some others like Siteground they have their own backend. But what you need is you’re looking for this: File manager. Now we’re going to see about this .htaccess what’s going on with this file, it is acting weird. This is strange, because normally when you open it, there is a way to edit it, like this one: “Edit in code editor’. When I do it with this one, it doesn’t see that. Why? It has to do with the permissions I think, so let’s see. All right the permissions has been changed so that we cannot write it. Let’s put it on write and press save. Now let me see what’s going on with this… now can we… yes now can we edit in the code editor. Okay let’s see what happens. All right. This is not a normal WordPress .htaccess. So let me show you the normal .htaccess file in WordPress; is supposed to look like this. #Begin WordPress and #End WordPress and this is to make the rewrite rules good so you can use permalinks and all this kind of stuff. Um this is normal and this is what it says. It says order allow deny deny from all so what someone has been doing here, is all these files – those are not WordpPress files! Autoseo.php? Wp-block-header.php? Ms-sites? Those are not WordPress core files. So someone is trying to cover up, and trying to block us out to not edit these files. Right? We’re gonna change this file back to the normal .htaccess file. So this is the normal one. We’re going to copy it…

301 Redirect Using .HTAccess – Redirect A Website Page | WP Learning Lab

Redirect 301 /old-page/

Sometimes you have to 301 redirect a website, an individual website page or multiple website pages. In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a 301 redirect via your .htaccess file.

A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect and it tells search engines, including Google to remove the original URL from their index and replace it with the one you’re redirecting to.

So let’s put that code from above into your .htaccess file and redirect some pages!

First login into your hosting account cPanel. Then find and click on the File Manager icon and choose the Document Root for the website that you are hardening. This will open the root of the website in another tab.

You can also log into the website root using FTP if you are more comfortable with that.

If you do not see a .htaccess in the website right then you can make one by clicking Add New File in the File Manager or right-clicking and choosing Create New File via File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

Open the .htaccess file and paste the code below into it.

Redirect 301 /old-page/

Replace “/old-page/” with just the part of the URL that comes after the domain name.

For example, to make an .htaccess redirection from to our 301 would look like this:

Redirect 301 /brute-force-attack-real-time-pong-game/

You can test the website URL redirection immediately after saving the changes in the .htaccess file. If you are not redirected the something went wrong. That is how you redirect a page or redirect URL using .htaccess.

I hope this video on redirect webpage, redirect website and re-direct url using .htaccess helps you! If you have any questions leave a comment below or ping me @WPLearningLab on Twitter.
