    I still cant find .htaccess in FileZilla. Do I create an empty .htaccess file in notepad and save it to FileZilla or am I looking in the wrong place?

    You don't "save it to FileZilla"... you upload it to your host server through Filezilla.

    My webhost is Yahoo and it looks like it wont support a file without an extension. Anyone knows if this is true?

    I really want to upgrad and have followed the instructions to a T but it is not working - any suggetions?

    I am back at blank screen for my website. Whooami, this time when you go you just might see it empty. I have been working at this since 6 am -

    Someone please tell me what I am doing wrong!

    As i stated in another thread. Makasha, youre not following the directions. (it was clear in your most recent thread in that other thread) Instead, youve gone off on this .htaccess tangent.

    You need to follow the instructions located here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress#Detailed_Instructions

    Note that it says SPECIFICALLY what files to delete after youve backed up.

    Just in case, sometimes you have to click on View, Show Hidden Files in Filezilla to see hidden files in the 'remote site' (right side) view.
