In this post you will find out about the .htaccess file and the power it has to improve your website.
Creating a .htaccess File
You can create a .htaccess file on your local computer or on the server.
On the server :
- Login to your cPanel Account
- Click the File Manager icon, located in the Files section.
- From the File Manger popup choose "Choose Hidden Files (dotfiles)."
Note: If you do not see this popup you will need to click the "reset all interface settings" link at the bottom of the cPanel page.
- From the File Manager popup choose the folder you would like to open, most often the "Web Root (public_html/www)"
