.htaccess creation

Often a Web site uses a .htaccess file. This is a configuration file, which gives instructions to a particular directory on how incoming traffic is handled on your website.

WordPress uses a .htaccess file. Sometimes when installing, transferring or creating a WordPress site, this file may not be created correctly, causing your website to not show up (properly).
You can then manually create this file via File Manager in Plesk, or upload it yourself via FTP. The file must be placed in the root folder of the website.

Default .htaccess WordPress

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

You can copy and paste this text into a file called .htaccess that you create yourself.
