Hi there!
Since few days i can not view or open the .htaccess file in the public_html folder of my site.
I receive a warning : Error HTTP 401. Security Token not valid ... and so on

Anyone can help ?

Thanks in advance !

While you've got the File Manager open in your browser, look at the top right corner of the page for a button titled "Settings". If you click that there is an option titled "Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)" make sure that's enabled. The .htaccess is a "dot" file and is hidden from view if this option is unticked.
