I have been trying to find my htaccess file and I can’t find it anywhere, I have checked for the htaccess file in both cpanel and FTP and I have checked for hidden files but it doesn’t seem to be there. Could it be somewhere else other than in the root? I have read that when you activate the SEO friendly urls in WordPress that it should automatically create a htaccess file, I have activated the SEO friendly urls but theres no htaccess file so how have they been adjusted without the htaccess file? If I don’t have a htaccess file do I need one? will it effect my rankings?
Thanks in advance
