Did someone change my .htaccess?


#1

My domain http://jimstips.com is a WordPress site. Yesterday, I added a new Page, tested things, and the site worked just fine, directing to the Home page which is a page of posts. Today, I try to access the same Home page, and it is auto-redirecting to the page that I added yesterday.

Any clues?

It is doing a 301 redirect. Have you looked at your .htaccess? And check the timestamp of the htaccess file to see when it was last modified.

I figured it out.
I have a Plugin in Wordpress called “Redirection” and somehow, an entry for “/” got added causing “/” to redirect to the page that I created. I removed the redirect definition, and it now loads as expected. Case closed!!
