Question viewing a htaccess file in the ftp

I have noticed I can not see or access any of the htaccess files I have in my files. is there a way to do this? I have tried both the web based ftp and a client ..wsftp.. and filezilla neither show the htaccess files on this server but show the files on my other server.. can I adjust a file so I can view the htaccess files?

thanks

Please have a look at your proftpd.conf file, it seems that you configured proftpd to hide files that begin with a dot.

User nobody
Group nogroup

# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home

# want anonymous users, simply delete this entire <Anonymous> section.
<Anonymous ~ftp>
User ftp
Group ftp

# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp

# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
MaxClients 10

# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.

Add this to /etc/proftpd.conf:

Code:
LsDefaultOptions                "-la"
and restart ProFTPd.

Then try this instead in /etc/proftpd.conf:
Code:
ListOptions                     "-la"
