Using File Manager

To upload files through the Panel's file manager:

  1. If you are subscribed to several hosting packages and have access to several webspaces associated with your account, select the required webspace in the Subscription menu at the top of the screen.
  2. Click the Websites & Domains tab.
  3. Click File Manager.
  4. Create or upload files and directories.

    Place the files and directories of your site to the httpdocs directory. If you use CGI scripts, place them into the cgi-bin directory.

When you upload web content through File Manager or FTP, the Panel automatically sets the appropriate access permissions for files and directories. On Linux-based servers, the permissions are represented as three sets of symbols, for example, 'rwx rwx r--'. The first set tells what the owner of the file or directory can do with it; the second tells what the user group, the file or directory belongs to, can do with the file or directory; the third set indicates what other users (the rest of the world, that is, Internet users visiting a site) can do with the file or directory. R means the permission to read the file or directory, W means the permission to write to the file or directory, and X means the permission to execute the file or look inside the directory.

To modify permissions for a file or directory on a Linux-based hosting account, click a hyperlink representing the set of permissions in the Permissions column. If you use a Windows-based hosting account, click the icon . Modify the permissions as desired and click OK.

To view the file, click .

To copy or move a file or directory to another location, select the required file or directory using the appropriate checkbox, and click Copy/Move. Specify the destination for the file or directory to be copied or renamed to, then click Copy to copy, or Move to move it.

To update the file or directory creation date, click Change Timestamp. The time stamp will be updated with the current local time.
