i have a wordpress installation in a htaccess protected directory. all was fine with the world until it broke one day. honestly i don’t think i did anything- i dont remember tweaking the settings.
the problem is that the wp site is blank. after logging into the htaccess, i get blank pages for the homepage and for the wp-admin page. if i delete the htaccess protection it comes back.
i was doing the htaccess protection automagically through dreamhost, when i had problems i created it manually- same problem. i think in the process of my troubleshooting i upgraded wordpress.
how can i get htaccess to work again? anyone have ideas as to how i broke it? thanks!
