New htaccess file with 2.5.7

Postby merc911 » Fri Sep 14, 2012 7:55 pm

Just updated Joomla to version 2.5.7 (from 2.5.6).

I note it has put back htaccess.txt to the home directory whereas i had already renamed the previous version of this to .htaccess.

Were there some updates in this new htaccess file or can i ignore delete this htaccess.txt?

Ignore it. It added the file back because it no longer existed. It didn't check to see if you had created the .htaccess.
