words of wisdom from a systems engineer

Show hidden dot files in proftpd

If you can’t see hidden files in proftpd (the files beginning with a dot, like .htaccess), you can enable the option in your client. However, you can force the files to be displayed in almost all clients with a server wide variable in your proftpd.conf:

ListOptions -a

Make sure to restart proftpd afterwards and re-connect to the FTP server to see the changes.
