Using the File Manager Code EditorWritten by James Richardson
Editing code on your web site is an inevitable event. If you have minor changes to make on your web site that can be done simply, you can use the code editor in the cPanel File manager to change the code. This is called "Editing on the fly", which is changing the files of the source website while its live. Let's go to cPanel File manager and see how this editor works.
Important! Editing the code in a file on the server can break your website. Because the file is being used by the live website, we always recommend editing a backup copy of your site instead of the files on the server. Make a backup copy of the file before editing it by saving the file as a different name.
How to use the File Manager code editor
- Login into your cPanel.
- Go to the File Manager.
- Navigate to the page you want to edit. Select the file and click code editor.
This is where you can add code or change code in your file.
When you are done making the changes, you can click Save Changes at the top right. Otherwise, click cancel.
