  • Thanks for the info. It worked perfectly for me!

    where should I add that anywhere in particular (top, bottom?)

    Thanks I ‘m having probs upgarding on 1 and 1 too!

    it worked woooot tytytyty:)

    Why on earth can’t I find the .htaccess file? I feel like I’ve looked everywhere!

    can’t you find it where? If you drag it from the server to the desktop and you are on a Mac you won’t see it because the “.” before the htaccess name makes it invisible.

    What I do is delete the dot while the file is on the server, drag to desktop so I can see it, I modify it, delete the previous on the server and upload the new one and add the dot in front of htaccess file again and that’s it.

    So if you are on a mac thats why you don’t see it on the desktop or anywhere once downloaded. If you are on Windows sorry I have no idea.

    Thanks! I am on a Mac actually. I am using Filezilla, and I can’t find it on the server either. Maybe that’s the reason for some of my other problems on WordPress. How do you access the file from your server?

    you should see it on the server where the wp files are

    I use fetch to get on my server…there is a free demo I think:

    I just created a new file, but I’m not sure what needs to be in it. Do you edit yours in some sort of text editor?

    I thinkwordpress should create itw own when you install it..not sure.
    Yeah I edit with a text editor

    Thanks man. I’m looking around to find out the best way to make this happen. I appreciate your help on this. You are cool.

    Simple thread subject. Thankyou.

    Yes, thank you! I was baffled.

    Does this address those of us who do not see the option to Auto upgrade our 2.7.1?

    I have seen a few questions regarding this but no answers. I have 2.7.1, but there is no option for auto upgrade, yet up to 2.7.1 I have seen the option and used it each time.

    Thanks for any input and I am sorry if this is considered to be the wrong place for this question.

    WHere exactly do I add the code?

    This is how my .htaccess file looks like.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ./index .php [L]
    # END WordPress
