Manually edit .htaccess


#1

How do I manually edit a .htaccess file with a shared account?


#2

Only the owner, or groups assigned to that directory, can have access to the contents. What do you mean by shared?

By shared, I mean a shared hosting account with Dreamhost. There’s only one user on the account.

I use WinSCP and connect via SFTP.

Open the .htaccess file and edit away (it’s just a text file) :slight_smile:
