Can not install Magento Patch 6788 due to .htaccess inconsistency
This is well known issue, Magento need to patch .htaccess file as well as its sample file (.htaccess.sample). If you use a modified .htaccess file you have to run something like this:
mv .htaccess .htaccess_original wget -qO .htaccess http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.7/.htaccess wget -qO .htaccess.sample http://svn.magentocommerce.com/source/branches/1.7/.htaccess.sample sh PATCH_SUPEE-6788_CE_184.108.40.206_v1-2015-10-27-09-06-11.sh mv .htaccess .htaccess_patched mv .htaccess_original .htaccess
Do not forget to use the correct patch filename.
