Hidden files

Hidden files

Hidden file and folder names start with a dot.


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

In cPanel, click the File Manager icon and a window will pop-up. Check the box for "Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)." Then click Go.

If you do not see any pop-up, try clicking the Legacy File Manager icon instead.
