Basic Cpanel Operations

To access the File Manager, go to cPanel -> Files:

Tombol Bar File Manager

In this section, you can search for specific files in the selected directory and also change File Manager settings, such as selecting the root directory to open by default when you access the File Manager, displaying hidden files (dotfiles), and disabling the character encoding verification dialog.

  1. Home - returns to the directory created specifically for your hosting account. It contains all folders and files, such as public_html. The path is /home/your cPanel username.
  2. Up One Level - directs you to the folder above the currently accessed folder (depending on the directory tree).
  3. Back - directs you back to the previous directory.
  4. Forward - directs you back to the directory that was just closed.
  5. Reload - refresh the currently accessed directory (where files were uploaded/modified via FTP while File Manager was open and you want to see the results).
  6. Select All - selects all files in the directory.
  7. Unselect All - deselects all files in the directory.
  8. View Trash - view the files in the trash.
  9. Empty Trash - deletes all files from the trash folder.

Context Menu

The Context Menu will be activated once a file or folder is selected (right-click to see the same function):

  1. File - creates a file inside the currently accessed folder.
  2. Folder - creates a new directory.
  3. Copy - if this option is selected, the file or folder will be copied to the same or a different location. The process is almost similar to Move.
  4. Move - transfers the selected file or folder to another directory. To select a new directory, you just need to write its path and click Move File(s):

  • World – Read

The permissions value for the folder is 755 or:

  • Owner – Read, Write, Execute
  • Group – Read, Execute
  • World – Read, Execute

13. View - view the contents of the file in a new window.
