Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I'm not sure if this is even a valid question, but I'm trying to make a password system work and I'm wondering if the .htaccess file needs permissions set to, say, 777.
I'm using CuteFTP and I can't see the htaccess file on the server, and as I normally set permissions with a right-click on the file and choosing CHMOD, I can't see how to do it. (Or even know if I need to)
Someone put me out of my ignorance. :)
Now, the reason you can't see the file in your FTP program depends on the server settings. Some providers block all .h* files from being seen in the folder tree (for security reasons). That doesn't mean the file isn't there, you just can't see it.
