Can't upload htaccess file


I am uploading a new PHP website. I have the 5.5php from dreamhost. Every file uploads OK except the htaccess file.

I have uploaded it manually and the transfer is successful but it is nowhere to be found. I have tried several times and looked in the root directory and all other files on my FTP.

RewriteRule ^video-poster/(.*).html index.php?author=$1

Yes it is fully hosted. I even went back and repeated the fully hosting option again. This is what I don’t understand why it is showing parked. It is active and I get email through it.


Looks like it is out of park and in drive now.


Thanks I have a few changes to make.
