How to Upload a File using the File Manager

You can upload your files directly through cPanel using the File Manager. File Manager is a web interface that allows you to manage all files associated with your account.

This following video demonstrates some common tasks that can be accomplished with File Manager, including uploading, renaming and deleting files.

Note: There is a 500 MB upload limit through File Manager. If you need to upload a larger file, please use FTP.

cPanel's File Manager may look slightly different depending on which version of cPanel your server is running, however, the functionality described in the video is the same.
