Change Joomla htaccess.txt file to .htaccess with CPanel

Changing your htaccess.txt file to .htaccess is important in Joomla because it allows you to enable Search Engine Friendly URLs. It’s also an important step to help keep your site safe. Here’s how to do it.

Login into your CPanel

Often you can access your CPanel just by adding /cpanel to your domain name …

Access the File Manager

Although your screen may not look 100% identical to the one above, every version of Cpanel does come with a “File Manger” option somewhere.

Choose to Go to the Webroot

Find htaccess.txt

Your files and folders will be listed alphabetically. Scroll down until you find htaccess.txt

Check the box next to htaccess.txt and click “Rename” at the top of the page.

Change the file name to .htaccess

Enter .htaccess as the new file name and click “Rename File”
