I am trying to assure my 301 redirects are correct for a customer site but can’t seem to find the htaccess file. Anyone know where it would be located? I have hidden files showing in my FTP but don’t see one?!
The file mostly is hidden. If you don’t have pretty permalinks, you may not have it at all.
I know it is a hidden file but it should show up if I have hidden files showing in my FTP and as far as I know I am on an apache server with pretty permalinks.
Try resetting your permalinks and look for it, possibly it may show up. Did you try at your control panel?
For some reason the FTP I was using wasn’t showing the hidden files, so I used a different one and was able to gain access to it.
Glad to know that you could solve the problem.
