Just playing with .htaccess
Quick question, can anyone please tell me how to make dot files visible?
If you mean at the console, you use the -a (for all) switch to ls:
[adrian@computer]$ ls -a
If you want this to be permanent, then you can use an alias:
[adrian@computer]$ alias ls="ls -a"
On your system ls is probably already aliased to be:
so you could either find where this is and then add the -a switch, or
alternatively in your ~/.bashrc file add the line:
alias ls="ls -a"
(same as the one you type at the command line)
If you want a file browser to show dot files, then you probably need to
look in the preferences or options menu for the file browser (konqueror,
nautilus, mc, etc)
Hope that helps,
