Ever wondered how to show hidden (invisible) files in the cPanel File Manager? I did. I needed to edit
.htaccess but it wasn’t showing up in the list of files. I could find the file by searching for it, but I couldn’t access it from the search pane.
Frustrated, I turned to Google.
As it turn out, the solution was right under my nose… When you first launch File Manager it will offer you the option to “Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)”. If you check that box, they will show up. If not, you need to close the File Manager and re-open it. This time around, just be sure to check the box.
Once I did that, it worked perfectly. Easy, right?
