I have a VPS Server based on CentOS 6.4 (Final)

The inconvenience: When I log on via SSH (using root user) I can't see hidden files, e.g I can't see (for default) the .httaccess and others system similar files. (also in FTP)

Files exist, because I used ls -a and I can see all files, but I think that isn't idea.

Similarly I can't see hidden files on FTP (I use vsFTPd 2.2.2)

Finally, for example my FTP directory has 757 permissions.

Any idea? Thanks


Try creating a shell alias. For instance in bash:

alias ls='ls -a'

  • @joseluisq: It's not necessary to reboot :( – user9517 Jul 13 '13 at 21:24
  • @lain: It's true :D I rebooted! Logging out was enough :) – joseluisq Jul 13 '13 at 21:39

    If you add this alias to ~/.bashrc, the easiest way to enable it is to run: source ~/.bashrc. – Ynhockey Mar 25 '18 at 14:39
