550 .htaccess: Permission denied


#1

Okay I downloaded my .htaccess file and added the GZIP rule to it but when I try to upload the .htaccess file backup to via ftp I get 550 .htaccess: Permission denied.

Any ideas on how to remedy this?


#2

Upload as: htaccess.txt

Then, using the FTP utility, rename to: .htaccess


#3

Done deal!

Appreciate all your help Keyplyr
