[resolved] .htaccess file CRASH! (4 posts)

    Please, someone help, I really appreciate it here...

    I just installed the Static Jack plugin, and tried to edit the .htaccess file as per his instructions. Now the entire site has crashed; I cannot access anything in wordpress on the site; and I don't know what to do! I am looking for the .htaccess file in my ftp folders, but I can't find it....

    Just to clarify, occasionally when I have been cutting and pasting into wordpress, the files get cut-off when I save them (it's been a real pain and I haven't had time to figure out why) but I have a feeling that's what happened.

    Do I have to re-install wordpress entirely?

    Make sure that your ftp client is set to show hidden files (by default, any file starting with a "." is hidden).

    To find the .htaccess file in your ftp client remote pane, you may have to dig around to figure out how to show all files. Some clients have a "file mask" field into which you input -la or variations thereof.

    Thank You Thank You Thank You!!

    My heart rate has returned to normal :)

    Just to help anyone reading this in the future, to find and edit the .htaccess file on your mac, go to Find>File and set properties to visibility>invisible. You can edit and save the file from the search results.
