 on my development site (Plesk Obsidian, Centos 7.9) a fresh installed
 latest WP 6.0 beta2 does not create an .htaccess file at all.

  - wordpress-6.0-beta2.zip does not contain .htaccess
  - unzipped and uploaded to site
  - domain opened in browser
  - run set up process until login
  - no .htaccess created
  - table wp_options 'permalink_structure' contains
  - login as admin
  - selecting a permalink structure and saving on /wp-admin/options-
  - table wp_options 'permalink_structure' contains "/%postname%/" as
  - no .htaccess created
  - repeated saving of permalink structure does not help to create
  - no entry in debug.log
  - as to be expected: permalinks not working in front end
  - only solution: create a basic .htaccess manually

 To me this seems a severe bug.

 Found this while testing one of my plugins on WP 6.0 before updating it to
 plugin repository
