You don't want the "5" in there.
It needs to be saved as ".htaccess". Also make sure your text editor is not appending a ".txt" to it either or it will not work.
You could probably use dreamweaver to simply rename it to ".htaccess" and then reload it and you should be good to go.
Yes - that worked when inside DWCS4. Thanks. It simply wouldn't save without adding something to the start.
Sorry Jason, I disagree when you state it's not a PS3 issue. I do think that this is an issue with PS3 because it prohibits use of it without PHP5 because WA's partner and recommended hosting company 1+1 doesn't run PHP5 by default (although 1+1 don't tell you this) then surely every single PS3 / 1+1 customer will not be able to get past the 'Simple Installation Wizard' without further assistance. Surely, this needs addressing by providing the necessary file or at least written into the manual.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting past step 2 now and into the unchartered waters of steps 3 - 7 of the 'Simplae Installation Wizard'. Never been able to get past step 2 before!!!
