Since switching from Windows 7 to Mac OS X, I've had nothing but trouble when developing WP sites locally.
Now I've come to find that I can't locate the .htaccess file in my site folder. I created one using the Terminal, but I can't find it in the Finder.
I noticed when I change the permalinks that none of my pages work except the home page.
Another thing I notice is that I can't setup categories for my posts.
I've searched on WP and Google, but I'm at my whits end.
