I get the following error when trying to install SS.
User 'apache' needs to write be able to write to this file:
When I check the uploaded files .htaccess is not there.
If I try to upload again nothing happens.
Also the .htaccess file appears to be empty at only 0KB
Can anyone help?
.htaccess is an invisible file.
The file size doesn't matter, the server just needs write access to it.
How can I change the write access on a file I can not see?
If you have SSH access, you can use chmod on the file.
Otherwise, your upload programme probably has an option to view invisible files.
Many thanks for your help :)
If you have an FTP client, get it to pass the global command -al on the end of its LIST commands, that shows "hidden" files.
