Had to reinstall WAM. Need help recovering .htaccess? - Post ID 261773

I am a licensed Website Access Manager. After a catastrophic disk crash, I had to reinstall all my software. I was able to reinstall WAM.

My question: how do I recover my .htaccess and .htpassword files from my web host? Where are these files stored on both the web host and the PC running WAM?

Thanks in advance.

The output of what Access Manager produces cannot be imported back in. If you lost your project file (ends in .HDB) you would have to start over with a new database.

Thanks. Fortunately, I was able to find & open my old .HDB file.
