Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] What / Where IS the .htaccess file ????

I'm again prepping to take our WP/Atahualpa site "live" -- it's been running in the /www.Hatchtown.com/wp/ subdirectory while our old site has been out front at /www.Hatchtown.com/index.html. I guess what I'm going to do is to make the WP file index.php what visitors load when they come to the site. If anyone has any hints, thoughts or suggestions about this whole process I'll greatly appreciate hearing them!!

Anyway, one of the instruction steps reads:
7. Copy the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory into the root directory of your site (Blog address).
There is NO .htaccess file in my /wp/ directory OR any of its sub-directories.

I did a search and found 12 .htaccess files Ten of them are in various /Zencart/ directories -- I haven't even activated the Zencart plugin so am fairly sure that none of those .htaccess files are of interest at this point.

The other two instances of .htaccess are in the /_db_backups/ and /stats/ subdirectories of the main directory. The one in /stats/ has not been modified since 1/22/2009 while the one in /_db_backups/ was modified more recently on 3/11/2009.

Which .htaccess should I be copying into the root directory -- oh, and I just noticed that it says "copy" and not "move" -- I'm glad of that! I'm pretty sure I was going to move it. whew!
