BulletProof Security Pro 5.1.4 Released 1-23-2012
|Whats new in BPS 5.1.4
One very important .htaccess security filter change has been made. Please use AutoMagic to create a new secure.htaccess Master file with AutoMagic and Activate BulletProof Mode for your Root folder. This release includes coding improvements and enhancements and new Web Hosts have been added to AutoMagic for custom php.ini .htaccess handler code writing.
|General BPS Pro Info:
There are several first time and one time set up steps for First Time Installations of BPS Pro. Future upgrades of BPS Pro are very quick and simple.
|BPS Pro checks everything in real time so there is no need to worry about forgetting to set something up or setting something up incorrectly. If something is not set up or is set up incorrectly you will see an alert or warning about what needs to be done to correct the problem.|
|When upgrading BPS Pro, ONLY the BPS Pro plugin files are updated / upgraded. This means that all of your settings and security files (.htaccess and php.ini) remain unchanged and are not affected by installing a newer version of BPS Pro.|
|Custom php.ini file creation and set up is a one time thing per hosting account. When you create your new custom php.ini file in your Document Root folder it protects all of your websites under your Hosting account. You only need to create 1 custom php.ini file for your entire Hosting account.|
|PHP Errors are a normal thing that occur on all websites intermittently. PHP errors were already occurring on your website befoe you installed BPS Pro, but you were not being alerted about them. With BPS installed you are now being alerted about these PHP errors. If you do not want to be alerted about PHP errors then you can turn this alert off on the S-Monitor page by choosing Turn Off Displayed Alerts for the PHP Error Log: New Errors in The PHP Error Log alerting option.|
|First Time Installation of BPS Pro: When installing BPS Pro for the first time you will see alerts and warnings that your site is not protected. Unfortunately, this is necessary thing in order to ensure that you are using the latest BPS Pro Master .htaccess files on your website. Your website is ALWAYS protected with BPS security no matter what unless you actually change something to unprotect your website, such as putting your website in Default Mode. When upgrading BPS Pro, ONLY the BPS Pro plugin files are updated / upgraded. This means that all of your settings and security files (.htaccess and php.ini) remain unchanged and are not affected by installing a newer version of BPS Pro. If you have created additional files within the BPS Pro plugin folders they are NOT affected by upgrading BPS Pro and will NOT be removed, deleted or overwritten. The upgrade will ONLY overwrite BPS Pro plugin files so if you have added additional custom coding to any BPS Pro plugin files then be sure to back them up first before upgrading. BPS Pro Log files WILL be overwritten so if you want to keep your old php error log and http error log (403 error log) files then be sure to use BPS Pro Zip backup to backup your current version of BPS Pro first before upgrading to a new version. When Activating new Master .htaccess files for your website (Activating BulletProof Mode) be sure to back up your old .htaccess files first using the BPS built-in Backup and Restore feature. Another very handy options is to save any custom .htaccess code in-between upgrades to the My Notes page. This allows you to copy and permanently save any custom .htaccess code or .htaccess code modifications that you have added to your .htaccess files so that you can quickly copy that custom .htaccess code back to your new Master .htaccess files before activating them. You could copy your entire Root .htaccess file to the My Notes page if you want as well.|
