View Full Version : .htaccess?
08-09-2004, 07:16 PM
hi, I used .htaccess files in my server, and now i cant remove them because my ftp program can't view them. Is there any way to remove them?

You could ssh into the box and remove them via the Command line.

?> ssh email@example.com
?> ENTER PASSWORD
?> cd /path/to/directory
?> ls -al
?> rm .htaccess
?> Are you sure (y/N)? y
?> ls -al

If you're on a windows box, you'll need to download and install putty (check for "putty download" on google).
Then connect to the server and type what I entered in my last post.
ls = show files in the current directory (much like dir in dos)
rm = remove file
Hope this helps

Err, just find the "List Options" box in your FTP client's preferences box and put this in the box:
That'll show ALL files.
Can't find list options? Try your FTP client's "help" section and search for "-al" or "LIST", or "display hidden" etc.

This really doesn't have anything at all to do with PHP. Please post in the appropriate forum in the future.
Moving thread to Server side Issues...
