Re: I cannot find .htaccess file to moderate it

Thanx intimez and Paul. I select settings->permalinks and then a common setting like the second (date and name) or third (month and name) but when I click “Save Settings” there is a message (in greek this is the translation) on the bottom of the page that “if the .htaccess file was writable then save will be automatically be completed, but it seems that it is not. Here are the rules mod_rewrite that you must enter into the .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

So, I cannot save settings and I cannot find .htaccess file. I have manually (I uploaded the folder with filezilla) installed buddypress, because there was a problem with automatic installation. Maybe it is the “same” problem again…

I also tried to create the “.htaccess” file as Paul suggests but since I have windows xp, it is impossible to create a file without a filename.
I tried to make the “/” folder writeable also (I give you the procedure I followed). I logged in with filezilla and I right clicked on “/” folder. Then I clicked on file properties and I ticked “write” on owner, group and public and I also selected to apply this setting to subfolders.
Unfortunately, the problem remains :(
