Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
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.
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.
