.htaccess file is not saving properly


I have tried saving a file called “.htaccess” using DreamWeaver CS5 but a warning message came up saying I would not be able to view the file. And sure enough I cannot see the file on my Mac Computer to upload it!

I found a web site that said some people may have to save the file as ".htaccess.txt and then upload it and then change the name. So I tried this but my FTP client (Transmit 4) will not let me change names of files online!

What should I try next? And how can i delete the invisible file on my computer?


You can upload it if you show hidden files in Transmit. Take a look at this: Showing .htaccess files in Transmit FTP | Alex M’s Blog


Brilliant — thanks — works fine,
