HTAccess Integrity

The .htaccess file is a distributed configuration file, and is how Apache handles configuration changes on a per-directory basis. WordPress uses this file to manipulate how Apache serves files from its root directory, and sub-directories. WordPress modifies this file to be able to handle pretty permalinks.

The .htaccess file is located in the root directory of your WordPress installation.
