How to fix Error 404 when Password Protect a WordPress Subdirectory with .htaccess

When you try to password protect a WordPress subdirectory by adding .htaccess and .htpasswd under subdirectory, you sometimes (in fact most of the times) get Error 404 – Page not found when you visit that subdirectory location in the browser.

To fix this error, add the following line at the top of .htaccess located in the root of your WordPress installation (yes, root .htaccess and not .htaccess of your password protected subdirectory), and you’re good to go now.

ErrorDocument 401 default

Do you have any different solution? I would love to hear your comments.

Deploy WordPress plugins from GitHub to WordPress.org SVN

Most developers (and companies) choose Git over SVN as their version control system. However, they have to use SVN to ship updates to WordPress.org plugin repo.

Ship is a new application designed to help developers deploy plugins directly from GitHub to WordPress.org repo. All you have to do is tag the release on GitHub and it will automatically push updates to the plugin’s official SVN repo on WordPress.org.


In order to use Ship, you must have already submitted your plugin zip file to WordPress.org. You can then sign into the Ship with GitHub account and authorize its access to your repositories.

Ship will then fetch all of your repositories and you’ll have to select the ones you want to hook up with a WordPress.org SVN address in order to start syncing updates.
