    .htaccess

    35

    .htaccess file is a granular configuration file for the Apache webserver software, used to set or alter the server’s configuration settings for the directory in which it is present, and/or its child directories.

    WordPress uses a .htaccess file in conjunction with the mod_rewrite Apache module to produce permalinks.

    Note that .htaccess is a hidden file in Unix/Linux (as dictated by the preceding period ‘.’), meaning it may not be visible using the default settings of some FTP clients.
