Showing hidden Files on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard

After you get apache up and running on your Mac, you will not be able to see your .htaccess and other configuration files. Here is a quick fix for that problem.

Open Terminal and copy the following text-
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

You will notice you screen will blink as finder restarts. Once it come back on all you hidden files will be visable.

note: Change “TRUE” to “FALSE” to make them disappear again.

Open Terminal and copy the following text-
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
killall Finder
