    HI, I have searched the forum but still can't find the location of my htaccess file to make it writeable. I have looked through all my wordpress files..

    also, when installing the newest version of wordpress, do i just install over the old one?

    The .htaccess file for WP should be in the folder where your WP install is - in the root if WP is there, in a subfolder if WP is installed in a subfolder.
    WP does NOT come with a .htaccess file, you have to create it.
