Hi

Just created an htaccess file for the first time - in order to redirect some pages that I had renamed.

instructions were to create the file - upload it to root directory - and then rename it to .htaccess

I did this and it all works fine - the only thing that confuses me is that the htaccess file is no longer visible.

I uploaded the txt file as 'untitled' - once it was on the server, I renamed it to .htaccess - and then I couldn't see it - is this normal?

If I want to edit it, should I rename the untitled file on my hard drive to .htaccess, edit it, and then upload

Depending on your FTP, you have to change the options in the program to recognize files with that extension. It really hasn't disappeared, you just aren't able to see it.

Thanks - I've sorted it

madcat - can't help I'm afraid - I'm not using cute - I use WS FTP

I just went to start up options and the put '-al' in the remote file mask box.

Just one more question though related to redirects ...

I currently have one line only in my htaccess file - I only have one redirect to do - if I have another page to redirect do I just enter another redirect line below this.

Yes, just add another line.

Thanks Jim

This htaccess is pretty useful - no more broken links to worry about - I learn something every day!
