A managed rule (that I don’t have access to see since I’m on the free plan) keeps blocking me from opening my wp-config file via the CPanel File Manager. I tried using a firewall rule to just allow my IP, but it continues to block me. Any way I can fix this? Thanks!
Thank you for asking.
I am sorry to hear you are experiencing an issue.
I can remember this come up few times, the solution to this could be found using a search button
I’d like to share a few posts recently about this here:
I was reading another post
But couldn’t reply the fix i found for not being able to edit the config file, the fix i found was to go into DNS settings and turn off proxies for cpanel, it should be on DNS only, do the edit you need then come back and switch it back on, no matter what i tried previously would work including the previous help in the the other post.
Rather, for better security approach, disable editting it through WordPress admin dashboard, remove the cPanel hostname (use hosting address to access the cPanel for your website), therefore connect via the server IP to the FTP, download the needed file, edit it, re-upload & replace existing one and done
