I'm looking through various installs of WordPress that I set up, and using my favorite ftp client, I can see some installs have .htaccess files and some don't.
The first question is probably not that important, but, how'd that happen?
The second question is what if I just copy another .htaccess file and then replace the domain name from the original with the domain name of the site I'm copying it to?
(As I always do before posting here, I searched through the forums for this problem, and while there are many questions/answers, none appear like the one I have. If the solution is here and I've missed it, I'm sorry, but would you point to it?)
