cPanel has been upgraded and now I can't see hidden or dotfiles.


When I click to open File Manager from cPanel, I no longer get the pop-up that allows me to show hidden files. When I go to my directory, I'm not able to see any of my dotfiles, like my .htaccess file.


The option to show hidden files, or dotfiles is still available in the Settings of File Manager.

  1. At the top of the File Manager, click the Settings button.

    settings button
  2. Check the Show Hidden Files (dotfiles) box, then click Save.
