Show Hidden Files
Posted by SEO Admin on 12 March 2015 05:08 PM

Hidden files and folder names on your site start with a dot (.). For example, '.htaccess', '.htpasswd' or '.bashrc'.

When using File Manager, you cannot see hidden files and folders unless you select the option to show hidden files. To show your hidden files:

  1. Log into cPanel

  2. In the Files section of cPanel, click the File Manager icon; a new window will pop up
    Note: if you do not see a pop-up box it's probably because you ticked the 'Always open this directory in the future when opening: File Manager' option too. To fix this, scroll all the way down to the bottom in your cPanel dashboard and click 'Reset All Interface Settings'.

     show hidden files

  3. Tick the option to 'Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)'

  4. Click Go

A list of all of your files, hidden or otherwise, will display in your File Manager.
