Show Hidden dotfiles and folders in cPanel Filemanager
cPanel works on a Linux Server and dotfiles and folders are hidden. For some reason you want to see those files and also want to make changes. By default, these files and directories/folders are not visible in the cPanel. Today we will show you how you can show the hidden files and folders in your cPanel Account file manager permanently.
- Login to cPanel
- Open cPanel’s File Manager.
- Find Settings on the Top right bar
- Popup will show up where you need to check the box with option “Show Hidden Files” and click Save Button.
- After clicking Save button you should be able to see dotfiles and dot folders if any in the current directory.
All done, refresh your files/folder in filemanager and now onwards you will be always able to see dot files.
The most common needed file being .htaccess 🙂
