How to edit WordPress .htaccess file using FileZilla

by Vijay


Few days back we have talked about FTP addon for firefox and I thought to give you a simple tutorial to get access to and edit the .htaccess file.

This tutorial will help you to edit wordpress .htaccess file using free FTP client Filezilla.


# Login to your host using FTP access in Filezilla.

# Now under Filezilla menu options > Select Server > Force showing hidden files.

# Next you need to navigate to your root folder of your domain and download the .htaccess file.

# Before you making changes on your .htaccess file, I highly recommend you to take a backup of your .htaccess file.

Do let us know your views on Filezilla free FTP client? And also don’t forget to subscribe us to get latest updates.
