WP writes htaccess file in account root when changing the URL in the admin area
|Reported by:||pyxis630||Owned by:|
When I changed the URL settings in the General Settings area from a temp value to the final one WordPress re-wrote the .htaccess file into the account root instead of the website root. I could repeat this successfully. Subsequently the website didn't work (500 error).
I also could repeat this behavior on a XAMPP setup on my Windows PC. The WP setup I used for testing this wrote the .htaccess file directly into c:\
The website account is a VPS like setup where PHP (5.2.9) runs in cgi mode (Linux server).
Looks like this bug happens when the system runs in CGI mode. I could not repeat this on a test setup on a Linux server that uses php_mod instead.
