I've just implemented a new WP website, replacing an older hardcoded HTML site. I will be adding 301 redirects in the
.htaccess file to point the old URIs to the new WP Permalinks.
My questions is, as WP generates the
.htaccess file initially (at least on my install it did) will WP overrite the
.htaccess file when I update WP in the future?
Further to the above, is there any time, including the update as mentioned above, that WP may overwrite this file and if so is there a way to prevent that?
I've searched high and low and can't seem to find a straight answer.
Any help would be appreciated.
