Your cPanel account has the ability to allow you to access, view, modify, add, and delete files from your account effortlessly, using the File Manager. In this tutorial we will show you how to access the File Manager, then go over the features available there.

Accessing the File Manager:

  1. Log into your cPanel
  2. Click on the "File Manager" in the "Files" section.

    You will then see your files listed. If you need to access a hidden file (such as .htaccess), it is covered in our guide on how to show hidden files.

cPanel File Manager Features

Now that you are logged into file manager, let's take a few minutes to understand some of the basic features of File Manager.

  • Task Bar (Purple Outline)- This is where you can perform basic tasks like create a new folder, delete a file, edit a file and much more.
  • Current Location (Orange Outline)- This tells you where you currently located. Also you can specify a path here to navigate to somewhere else.
  • File Tree (Red Outline) - This is also for navigation, but shows you a visual representation of how your files are structured.
  • Current Folder Contents (Green Outline) - This lets you know what the contents are of the current folder you are in.

CMS programs like OpenCart, WordPress, etc build the pages on command. There are not static files to edit manually. Editing is done via the admin dashboard.
