/upgrade.php Not Working After WordPress Auto-Upgrade.

Due to the option to hide the upgrade.php file in Hide My WP > Change Paths > WP Core Security > Hide WordPress Common Files, it seems that the upgrade.php file is not accessible by WordPress after the auto-upgrade and it is needed to complete the WordPress upgrade.

To make it work, edit the .htaccess file using sFTP or server File Manager and remove the line:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /(readme\.html|readme\.txt|install\.php|license\.txt|php\.ini|upgrade\.php|bb-config\.php|error_log) [NC]
  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [L,R=404]
</IfModule>

We add this fix in Hide My WP Ghost version 6.0.13. Upgrade the plugin after login and save the settings to rebuild the .htaccess rules.
