Can't modify .htaccess file on the server via edit or drag and drop (2 posts)

    I am trying to edit a .htaccess file on the server by editing from within Fetch.

    I click on the .htaccess file, choose Edit, add a directive, save, and refresh, but the changes are not made to the .htaccess file.

    But, I do see that a .htaccess.txt file has been generated with the changes (why).

    Drag and dropping a .htaccess from my Mac doesn't overwrite the file on the server.

    I can modify the .htaccess file via the terminal using pico with no problem.

    At one point I could click edit and make changes, or drag and drop from my mac, it would really be nice if I could do that again!!!

    Please advise...

    To follow up with the solution that Bo found: uncheck the "Add filename extension when uploading: Text files" box in the Upload section of Preferences.
