I am trying to "create" custom error pages and when I upload my htaccess.txt file to the server and rename it .htaccess the file is removed from the server. Does this mean my host prohibits it or am I doing something wrong?

Your file mask just doesn't allow you to see it - what are you using to transfer?

You might want to post the pertinent parts of the file, so you can get some feedback.

I am getting a 500 error saying my script isn't working so I am assuming the I have an invalid path but I am using a new host and not sure where anything is located.

I see that you are using WS_FTP, the same program I use to upload files. On the startup configuration for every web entry there is an edit button available before you click to login. Under the Startup tab look for Remote flie mask. Edit your web details to use the file mask -al (the second letter is a lowercase L). Alternately, you can type this mask into the input field on the right pane, under MkDir. -al allows you to view hidden files on your server. WS_FTP also allows one to edit on the server, if one so desires.

Thanks I tried that and still don't see the file.

I am now getting a 500 error but in the address bar is the link to the script. Any ideas?
