I got the following email today:
“I’m writing you about your site. It is getting severely
DDOS’ed and is causing huge amounts of read/writes to the file server,
causing high loads on the entire cluster and effecting 1000’s of
customers. I’ve had to disable it for now, when you can work on this you
can remove the “deny from all” from .htaccess (or write us back and we
can do it), and immediately install the wp-cache plugin and enable it:”
The traffic surge is over, but I’m having trouble getting to my .htaccess file. I can’t see it in any of the directories when I connect with FTP.
