    This happens quite a lot of times..

    When I create new folder, eg

    And I type in the URL to go to that folder, it shows me a blank page instead.

    Any ideas why this happens?

    Something to do with htaccess (which I have no idea about)

    If you have Indexes off, you cannot see the folder contents if you don't have any index or home page in the folder. So, yes, it would have to do with .htaccess in public_html being set for Indexes to off. cPanel > Index Manager is the area.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
