How do I find the .htaccess file?
Category: File Management
on the Cpanel screen, I select File manager, select my root and hit go. the .htaccess file does not come up.. I also selected Show hidden files. How do I find the .htaccess file?
To find your .htaccess file, be sure you did the following:
1. Log into your cpanel dashboard
2. Using the File Manager (be sure to select Show Hidden Files), navigate to your public_html folder
3. scroll down the list and the files that begin with a . will be directly under the folders.
If you do not have that file, you can simply create a new blank one by using the cPanel File creator. Simply click on the New File icon from the upper tool bar and give it a name. From there, you can edit the file from within the File Manager.
