How to edit hidden/system files?

In the Linux operating system, a hidden file is any file that begins with a “.” (dot). An example of such a file is .htaccess.

Such hidden files can be edited in two ways:

  • Using File Manager in Site Tools. By default, all hidden files are displayed in there.
  • The alternative method for editing your hidden files is by using the edit functionality included in your FTP client. For example, if you wish to see a hidden file in your FileZilla select Force Showing Hidden Files which is located in the Server menu.
