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.

Par example:

?> ssh user@domain.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.

Commands:
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:

-al

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.
