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.

If you don't see a pop-up, you can also select 'reset all interface settings' at the bottom of the CPanel home page. My problem was that I had opted to disable the pop-up without having ticked the 'show hidden files' box. By resetting you get another opportunity to set the hidden files option.
