Unable to see .htaccess or dot files in File Manager, cPanel

I was attempting to “edit” .htaccess file to make some url redirection for a page and I realised I wasn’t unable to locate the file in my web root. The first instinct is that I didn’t have any .htaccess file and I decided to create one. However, I was given an error that ERROR: Could not create file “.htaccess” in path. File exists..

This indeed confused me as I cannot locate the file. Upon further probing, I realised what was wrong. You have to check on the option Show Hidden Files (dotfiles) when you open up File Manager in your cPanel.

Tick the options Show Hidden Files (dotfiles).
