    Unhappy .htaccess deletes itself!?

    I am using fileZilla to upload my files, and I have recently been trying to add error handling and password protection to some areas of my site, however when I upload the file, it is listed, then it tries to calculate the file size and deletes it...Is this normal on a subdomain?

    I just noticed this the other day. I'm not sure it deletes it, I think it just doesn't list it. Because using windows ftp from the console I can download the file.

    by default, .htaccess isn't shown in the FTP window - in your ftp client you have to enter -al (the show all files) into the file mask box. I don't know where to type in that command in any other ftp client.

    Well I've never liked the feel of WS_FTP. Filezilla is of course open source. And it's pretty damn good I've found. I just downloaded it when I wanted to make a fresh start on my new site, I just moved to a VPS and everything so I treated myself to a whole suite of new development sofware.

    Well forn £30, I got a full licenced copy of WS_FTP Professional version 9. I didnt pay for the extended service agreement thing as I didn't need it

    WS_FTP Pro is one of the best FTP clients around, in my opinion

    I really didn't like it. Filezilla is much cleaner, and I really like my applications to be clean in respect to their UI...I mean why work in something that is just an eyesore? It's counter-productive. Granted it's not like you have to do much in an FTP client, but still it's helpful if it's easy to navigate and doesn't look like it belongs in Win16.

    I just looked up Ipswitch to see how it actually does look these days, seems like they've borrowed a bit of technology from codejock. A wise decision, still I wouldn't pay for it when I have a free alternative that does the job.

    Thanks you guys I see it now
    And I agree, having tried out WS_FTP home, FileZilla is better
    Edit number 2 : Also, editplus is a really good editor and it can directly upload to your site, which is cool. Editplus website
