Adding .htaccess files to FtpVC

Post by amin »

I cannot add files starting with a dot (.) to FtpVC. I develop on a Windows box but deploy to a Linux/Apache machine. I need to be able to keep .htaccess and .htpasswd files under source management. Is there a trick I can use to add these files to FtpVC?

Thanks

I've tested this, and I had no problem adding files named ".htaccess" to FtpVC. Could you describe the error message you receive or send a copy of your log to us?

Here is the log as captured in output windows. Still does not work in FtpVC 2.6. File gets added but is corrupted during transfer and shows with Local Only status in FtpVC:

Re: Adding .htaccess files to FtpVC

Post by psguru »

The problem may be that somehow you ended up with more than one stub files for .htaccess. Open your ftpvc folder with some FTP client. such as FileZilla. Check if you have more than one ftpvc/.htaccess.stub.* file. If so, delete the older one(s). The older stub name format (as I mentioned in another reply) will end with .sub while the current format will look like ftpvc/.htaccess.stub.866006655.1.Amin.U05-27-2009#206#124#149.

It still does not work, I deleted all the stub files (ftpvc/.htaccess.stub.*) and tried adding the .htaccess file again. It created the following stub file but it still shows with Local-only status in FtpVC!

.htaccess.stub.866006655.1.Amin.U05-27-2009#206#124#149

I have attached the file so you can try it yourself.

Thanks

There's no attachment in your post but I'm not sure how it would help. If it's the .htaccess file that you wanted to attach, we already tested a file with this name, and we had no troubles adding it to source control.

Did you test this with a Microsoft FTP Service? If not, I can give you access so you can reproduce the problem.

Yes, I just tested it with IIS, and had no troubles. If you give me access to your account, I should be able to debug this. Please do it via a private message.

We were also able to reproduce the problem with .htaccess. However, it has nothing to do with FtpVC. I used FileZilla to add any .* (I use .p) file to your server, and it didn't work: the file does not appear is the directory listing. Your FTP server seems to have restrictions against uploading .* files.
