How to display hidden files with pure-ftpd on Debian and Ubuntu Linux

If hidden files (files that start with a dot like .htaccess, .bash_history, .profile or .ssh) are not displayed in your FTP client, then they are most likely disabled in the FTP server. To enable hidden files in pure-ftpd on Debian and Ubuntu Linux, execute this command:

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/DisplayDotFiles

and then restart pureftpd.
