Viewing Hidden Files (4 posts)

    I cannot seem to find a way to view hidden files in Fetch. I need to modify my .htaccess file but, since it begins with a dot (.) I cannot view it in the first place.

    How do I view *all* files, including what is hidden? Anyone?? :-)

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Fetch should display the .htaccess file for you. Check the following:

    * Choose Fetch > Preferences.
    * Click the Miscellaneous tab.
    * Make sure "Omit filenames beginning with a period" is unchecked.

    Then reconnect to your server.

    Please let us know if this does not fix the problem. Thanks,

    Scott, thanks for you response. I checked and the "Omit filenames beginning with a period" and found that it was unchecked. I then noticed, however, the "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden files" was unchecked. I checked it, reconnected to the server and there were my files!

    Thanks for your suggestion. That got me set in the right direction.
