You will need an ftp client, and they all have a setting most likely something like “show hidden files” that must be enabled, most aren’t by default but could be.
in linux/unix environments, hidden files are files that start with a . as in .htaccess
I haven’t checked dreamhosts webFTP client lately because I only allow sftp/ssh and disallow ftp for security reasons (you should too actually–but that’s a differnt topic.) but last i knew the webftp client would not show invisible files no matter how bad you wanted to see them. You could upload one correctly named, but never edit it.
[/quote] OK, well no, the webFTP client, ( I do not like), has no “show hidden files” option that I can find, I like using SSH better, I think I know now, what I was doing wrong, I had not included the . when I tried to get to the htaccess file, via ssh,
thanks, this may help,
Edited: I got it now, that was why I could not find it, I did not include the dot, it was there and is what it should be Thanks again
