View Full Version : How to unhide dot files (.htaccess) in Pure-FTP?

26th March 2009, 00:41
Hi to all,

I would like to ask how to configure pure-ftp to show those files by default. What file with what content should I create in /etc/pure-ftpd/conf? I don't have file /etc/pure-ftp.conf or similiar and it would be great just to create file in directory I mentioned.

Thanks, fellows!

Which Linux Distribution do you use?

Very important to know...

To make PureFTPD show hidden files you have to create a new file "DisplayDotFiles" in "/etc/pure-ftpd/conf/" with the value "yes". Falko or s.o. else already mentioned it in the english ispc forum, but i think this setting belongs to a "PERFECT" server :)

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/DisplayDotFiles

My OS is Ubuntu. Thanks!
