    Need help: GoLive, .htaccess, and publishing

    Hi,

    I have someone asking me a question, and I don't know the answer.

    Can you use GoLive to pull down an .htaccess file from one server and push it up to another, using the Publish function (or whatever GoLive calls it)?

    Is there anything special that needs to be done to view the .htaccess file in the listing of files associated with a particular site, or will the file just be visible?

    (Sorry, but I have only used DreamWeaver once to publish a site, and never even seen GoLive - so I'm guessing here.)

    Many servers or clients will hide .htaccess from being downloaded via FTP...

    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.
