I'm trying to set-up pretty permalinks for my site. WordPress has a warning that my htaccess files is not writable. It provided some code to copy and put in the htaccess file.
I'm on a Mac, my local machine running WordPress 3.1.1.
I coped the code WP provided and pasted it into a new new TextEdit file that I named 1.htaccess . I put the file in the root directory Sites/mysite/. Then I tried to re-name the file and remove the "1", but my Mac gave a warning that files starting with "." are system files and wouldn't let me re-name it.
How can I make an htaccess file on a Mac?
