Hello! If you have a WordPress site, and the wp-config.php is not visible, it may not be located where you expect. In the File Manager, please check the public_html directory if the site is for your primary domain, or the appropriate other site directory if the site is an addon domain. If the site is not a WordPress site, then it would not use a wp-config.php and will be connecting to the database in another way, depending on what kind of site you have. Hope that helps!
