By default, file managers hide files that start with a "." (dot).
If you want to display files starting with "." (dot) such as .htaccess, please follow the steps below.

In addition, by displaying hidden files, system-specific directories are also displayed, so if they are deleted by mistake, problems may occur. Be careful when showing hidden files.

STEP 1: Log in to cPanel.

Hidden files are now visible in File Manager.
