Is There a Way to See Hidden Files on an Apache Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've bumped into something a little different.

    I've never had trouble seeing remote .htaccess files from within EW4. With a recent site, I can't. According to the host, .htaccess is marked "hidden," which is why they say I can't see it.

    Sure enough, if I select the Server | Force Showing Hidden Files option in Filezilla, I can see the .htaccess files on the remote.

    Does this mean that EW cannot see such files? If not, should it?

    Even though EW can't see the remote file, I can maintain a local copy (which is perpetually marked unmatched) and publish it at will. It's definitely being published because I can see the effects of the changes I make.
