[SOLVED] Missing .htaccess file?

I recently installed the latest WordPress version on my Yahoo hosted domain/site. It is set as my homepage and all files are in /wp directory. All seems well and runs okay but, using File Manager, I cannot find an .htaccess file anywhere, either in Root directory or /wp directory. Will appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Some hosts don't allow you to see the dot files like .htaccess. You may have to ask tech support to make it visible, or there might be a setting in your control panel that will show it to you. I'd assume it must be there or your site wouldn't be working.

Thanks for reply. I checked Yahoo help and they say...
Quote:
"...Yahoo! does not currently allow you to upload .htaccess files to your account. For other customization options, we recommend the Custom Error Pages and password-protection features available in your Web Hosting Control Panel."
Guess that clears up the matter for WordPress on Yahoo sites.
