Does Control Panel create .htaccess?


#1

I have password-protected a couple of directories via the Control Panel’s Goodies::htaccess/WebDAV facility. But my FTP client doesn’t list any .htaccess files. I’m just curious as to whether some other protection scheme is being used.


#2

It does use .htaccess. In order to view them, you have to use SFTP or SSH.

u dun…
in ftp…
add a filter to ur “ls” command
"ls -La"
most ftp client should support this


#4

Your FTP client’s probably not showing hidden files. See if there’s a Preference to Show All/Hidden Files.

Eh? Why would that be so? How would the dir “know” that the FTP command is arriving via SSH rather than via an FTP client?


#6

Ah, I found the way to add -a to server-side filtering. (I’m using CuteFTP Pro.) Now all is well.

Thanks everyone.

Not sure. That’s what I do to make it work. The list -a works too.
