    Hello to all on this board.
    Thanks to all those who previously helped me in every matter...

    I really inspired by the peoples on this borad.

    Now my Question is that I want to make Friendly URL of my website, So I try to change to change name from htaccess_default file to .htaccess in the main directory but its display error saying "FileOp Failure On: /home/sitepath/public_html/htaccess_default: Destination already exist"

    But I did not find any other .htaccess file in the directory, What is the wrong, Is it to modify htaccess_default file or .htaccess file is is exist in any other folder,

    Colud some one plz help me to resolve this issue,

    Looking forward...

    You may already have an existing .htaccess file and it may be hidden from view of your FTP software

    try changing the name to .htaccess_def and see if that allows you. If that works then at least you know that your changing name part works.
    then try finding a setting on your FTP software to show hidden files

    then get rid of the existing .htaccess file and change the name of .htaccess_def to just .htaccess

    let me know how you go
