    Newbie; .htaccess not visible Link to this post

    Hi, I'm new to this and have very little technical knowledge so please be gentle!

    I'm attempting to install SilverStripe. All my settings seem ok except for a warning saying .htaccess needs to be writable. I couldn't see it on the server so found a forum that stated how to make one in windows (text file called htaccess.txt, then rename it on the server to .htaccess). As soon as I rename it, the files seems to disappear, but if I go to upload it again, I get an overwrite request.

    The problem is, if I can't see it, how can I change it's write properties?

    Hope somebody can help!

    OK, I realised my stupidity just as I sent the last message - I changed the permissions BEFORE I changed the filename - sorry to waste your time!
