    I am trying to install own cloud in softaculous for a user, but during installation i get the error "Could not write the Configuration File _.htaccess"
    I was going to go into my server and enable htaccess but while doing some reading saw pros and cons.
    Can someone advise me if this can cause issues to my server doing this or not. or is it ok

    Hello :)

    Check the .htaccess file in the directory you are attempting to install the script in to see it's ownership/permission values. Make sure it's owned by the account username with 0644 permissions.

    Note that Softaculous is a third-party application. You may need to seek support for issues related to their application directly from their support or documentation.

    Thank you.
