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
wget -qO  .htaccess.sample
mv .htaccess .htaccess_patched
mv .htaccess_original .htaccess

Do not forget to use the correct patch filename.
