Can anyone advise how I could get access to change something in the downloader/.htaccess file?

I have cpanel x3 and when loading file manager this file is understandable hidden but there are no options/check boxes to ‘see hidden files’

Anyone suggest anything?

Thank you

Usually, you handle these using WinSCP or similar. The cPanel file manager can often be a second rate means of working with files.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Is WinSCP a type of FTP program then, I haven’t used this before?

Could I just access this one file, change it and upload again and it will still be hidden?

Thanks

If you have SSH access, WinSCP is “like” an FTP program, except it uses an SSH tunnel for the data transport. No transmitting logins or data in plaintext…
