• Scroll down and right click on the htaccess.txt file and view/edit.
• The default htaccess file will be in front of us.
• We will be add the php_flag display_errors and set its value to off and secondly we will add php_flag_url_include and set it to off.
• When you are done, go to the file menu and click on save. Now return to the FTP manager.
