Hey I uploaded a .htaccess file and I think it caused me some problems and now that I want to delete it, it wont show in my directory..... Has this got something to with it being a hidden file and.... I'm using cute ftp... How would I turn on hidden files or hoe would I delete the file... I kept uploading it to see if it apprear in my directory but it didnt even ask to overwrite and just uploads... I dont have a clue what .htaccess is I was just trying to do a forum hack but didnt go through with it... reason why I want to delete it is because since I uploaded it is because my fourm wont show up now....
Files that begin with a dot like .htaccess are hidden by default. In WS_FTP pro, you just look for the file mask entry box, and add -la in there and hit enter on the keyboard to see it.
Not sure where it is on CuteFTP.
You can set up CuteFTP to display these hidden files as follows. Open up the Edit menu and select the Filter option. Check the box next to Enable Remote Filters and enter the two characters -a in the Remote Filter box. Finally, click OK to confirm the change.
The next time you make an FTP connection to your account you will be able to see a number of hidden files which were not visible before. As always, please be careful not to delete any pre-installed system files or folders, unless you know what you are doing, as many of these files are necessary for the smooth running of your account.
