When I upload an htaccess file it disappears

On unix/linux systems, files that start with a . are considered hidden so many ftp programs do not see it. If you have uploaded a .htaccess file even though you may not see it, it is there. When uploading an updated version, you may not receive an overwrite prompt but it does upload the new file there.
