    How are they viewing ther folder? Files starting with a full stop are treated as hidden as default by most FTP clients and so will not be visible unless you enable viewing of hidden files int he FTP client

    If you are trying to access WWW folder using cPanel *File Manager OR
    *Legacy File Manager.

    As soon as you click file manager tab you get pop up window...
    some what like this :
    ================================================
    File Manager Directory Selection
    Please select a directory to open:

    * Home Directory
    * Web Root (public_html/www)
    * Public FTP Root (public_ftp)
    * Document Root for:

    Show Hidden Files (dotfiles).
    Skip this question, and always open this directory in the future when opening File Manager.

    ================================================

    In this pop please select the option of " Show Hidden Files (dotfiles). "

    Also please check the the ownership and permissions are setup correctly for the file ".htaccess ". in order to be able to be viewable to your clients.
