Subject:   can't save .htaccess file

I seem to not have the authority to save the .htaccess file. I'm logged in as an administrator, but not as the root administrator. Is this the reason?
I'm using BBEdit 6.5 and also tried unsuccessfully in TextEdit.

    Generically, OS X through the GUI, does not allow you to save .htaccess files without extra configuration. Your best bet is to get into a Terminal, type "touch .htaccess" where you want the file, and from there, edit in your favorite GUI editor.

      Thanks!
      Tried it and it worked great.
      The thing I had done before this was to use BBEdit from inside OS 9.2 partition. It enabled me to create the file, but I don't know if I did some kind of harm to the OS X environment.
      Your way is much better.
