Deleted important files? Restore to Default

Hi guys , I believe I deleted some important files in my public_html folder, namely the .ini and .htaccess files.


It seems these are very important since now when i try to navigate to another page I get this message:

You don't have permission to access /FolderName/ on this server.

Server unable to read htaccess file, denying access to be safe

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I created a new htaccess file and put it in my public_html , but now I can't edit it since I can't see how to view hidden files.


I went to settings in the FTP manager but there isn't an option to view hidden files like in some guides ive seen. 


Is there a way to either completely reset the site , back to "factory settings" or replace the files i foolishly deleted?


I'm not using wordpress or any other cms by the way.


Hope you can help! Cheers

Hi @viktorvamos, if you don't have a backup of the content, you'll want to give our live support teams a call to find out if a data restore would be possible for the files in question.
