Topic review


Please switch to passive mode. WinSCP should list the files in the log then.

A log file is not very useful here. I don't get any errors, I just can't see .htaccess, although it's definitely there.The log just says:
[Background 1] LIST -a
[Background 1] 150 Here comes the directory listing.
[Background 1] 226 Directory send OK.
[Background 1] Directory listing successful

Could it have something to do with the ownership of .htaccess?

Re: .htaccess not visible

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

.htaccess not visible

Hello everybody,

I'm having trouble seeing .htaccess on a linux system with WinSCP. Hidden files are shown, but no .htaccess.

What could cause this?
