Support » Installing WordPress » where is the .htaccess file?

  • Hello there

    could you please tell me where the .htaccess file is? According to Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory I should move the index.php file and the .htaccess file to the root directory if I would like to have the following:

    actual wordpress storage on my server:

    whilst I would like to have simply the following displayed:
    instead of

    Therefore, I now changed the wordpress address url in the general settings:

    blog address:

    so, I understand that I should put the index.php into the root together with the .htaccess. Does wordpress have its own .htaccess because the original webserver’s apache .htaccess file is stored somewhere else and I don’t think I should move that to somewhere else.
