How to Fix Bluehost cPanel File Manager Not Showing Hidden Files

#bluehost Misleads You. I was with #bluehost for a few months. I set up an account, along with the Certificate, that certifies your website virus free, and uploaded my site. Within a month, I received an email, saying my account/domain had been suspended for a Terms of Use violation, and contact them within 15 days I contacted support, and they said it was in fact not a TOS Violation, but a chargeback. I tried logging in to my account, after is was suspended, because on support they told me, to log into my account, to renew it, and it wouldn’t let me log in. So scratch that. 2 weeks ago, I received an email, saying the chargeback is complete, and another email to contact them/log into my account, renew my account, or it will be deleted in 5 days. My tip is, if you ever get an email, saying your account/domain was suspended for a TOS Violation, contact them, cause the email is lying. I’m now with a host in the BETA Stage of hosting. Great support, and .tk domains. Don’t believe #bluehost emails! They lie!

This video explains how to fix the issue of Bluehost cPanel file manager not showing hidden files even the option “Show hidden files” is selected.
.htaccess is a very important file of a WordPress that is hidden, and due to this issue, you may face the problem when you want to edit this file. So, this fix comes to the rescue.

    I am not a Bluehost user but one of my friends was having some issues with her hosting. I did show her this video and asked if she has the issue something like this. To my surprise, she was also facing the same issue in which she was not able to find htaccess file in which she wanted to add a redirection code.

    Glad this helped her fix the issue. Very cool video.
