htaccess disappears on FTP when I rename it to .htaccess

  • Posted August 7, 2013

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.

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

Configure your client to show hidden files – that’s usually the case.
