I have a VPS Server based on CentOS 6.4 (Final)
The inconvenience: When I log on via SSH (using root user) I can’t see hidden files, e.g I can’t see (for default) the .httaccess and others system similar files. (also in FTP)
Files exist, because I used
ls -a and I can see all files, but I think that isn’t idea.
Similarly I can’t see hidden files on FTP (I use vsFTPd 2.2.2)
Finally, for example my FTP directory has 757 permissions.
Try creating a shell alias. For instance in bash:
alias ls='ls -a'
