    I believe you're using Wordpress.

    Here's the easiest way:

    Chmod .htaccess to 777
    Change the permalinks structure on wordpress and save it
    Chmod back to 644

    Should work this way, there's no need for you to hand update it.

    The .htaccess file only works on a Unix or Linux server running Apache. It will not work on a Microsoft server or if your hosting company does not allow server overrides.

  4. thanks you guys. however, chmod don't change back the permission to 644 or its just that i'm not sure about the commands
    i log in to the cpanel and right click to it, but still permission didn't change back.

    I never use cpanel. Did you try it from a ftp.

    CHMOD can change the permissions back. I believe that you are not using it properly. You can take the help of your host provider like I do

    If you have knowledge of control panel then you can change it easily. But do this task carefully & save previous file in your computer to avoid wrong entry.

    I logged into my cPanel and clicked on the File Manager icon.

    Then I clicked on the folder icon for the public_html folder.

    Then I get a listing of all the files and directories which includes .htaccess

    This had file permissions set to 644

    Then I click on the file icon and get a list of things that I can do in the right side of the page.

    One of these is "Change Permissions" so I click on the link for this and can change the permissions OK back and forth.
