Show hidden files with ProFTPD

I used to have no problem displaying hidden files (more precisely, my .htaccesss files) using FileZilla client with ProFTPD, but for some reason suddenly they disappeared… Adding (or editing) the following option in /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf fixed this:

ListOptions “-a”

(actually I used ListOptions “-al” because the default behavior was -l, which is quite useful to me)
