Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post too, but wasn't sure where else to post it
We're running on a RH/Linux 6.2 and this has been driving me nuts. I've looked thru the Apache conf files, ProFTPd conf file and can't find what prevents hidden or "dot" files from being displayed when an account FTP's into their account. In the apache httpd.conf, there is a setting to prevent display dot files within the browser, but this should prevent display the dot files, when FTP'ing into the account.
I've tried various FTP client programs, and set it up to show hidden or "dot" files, but yet I can't get it to display the .htaccess or .htpasswd files. So some where I'm missing where this setting is. It's not a big problem, just an annoying problem as many clients get all flustered when they can't find their files, even tho they are there, just can't been seen.
One thing I did notice, if Log in as "root" , then they are visiable, otherwise not. So there must be something configured on server to allowing viewing of the hidden/"dot" files only to "root"... but where, I just can't seem to find it.
Any help would be much appreciated.
