    After using the Transfer Tool, I've got many errors like this: Could not update .htaccess (XID) The supplied domain name is invalid.

    I went and checked on the new server FTP and indeed, many (maybe 20% of them) .htaccess files are missing! How do I force the Transfer Tool to copy the damn .htaccess file without automagically "taking care" of it (a.k.a. DROPPING IT)

    I have a hundred sites with errors like this, as much as possible, i don't want to manually copy each and every .htaccess file by hand!!

    Thanks for any pointers.

    Was a permission issue on the parent folder, it's fixed. This can be closed, thanks.
