htaccess disappears on FTP when I rename it to .htaccess

August 7, 2013 3.2k views
If I do "ls -la" I can still see it in the terminal. But it's no there on FTP and I need to edit it constantly to test the urls. I have installed mod_rewrite on apache2 and restarted the service. Nothing changed. I have also edited /etc/apache2/sites-available/default and changed AllowOverride NONE to ALL That didn't help either.

Configure your client to show hidden files -- that's usually the case.
Jesus Christ, I'm an idiot.

Thank you Kamal.
Ha. It happens to all of us ;) Glad it worked! :]

No you're not; it's just that we all appear to be -- standing next to Kamal.
