ok, before i read your post i was traying to make my ws_ftp pro client to list hidden files...i also was thinking about the web ftp, but again, your link was helpful.
i just saw the error...in the same domain, theres a wordpress blog installed. The blog already had a .htaccess file, but within its own directory. So, i did place an other .htacces on the domain root folder, thus having two htaccess and crashing the whole thing down.
tnxs for your time, patience, and help!
Glad to help you out with any AS or flash related doubts.
