Changing directories
Posted by David, Last modified by Ashley L on 19 November 2019 02:57 PM

Since your website’s files will likely be in multiple directories, it is important to know how to navigate to the directory that you wish to be in. You can only access the files in the directory that you are currently in; so, changing directories is necessary to complete many tasks.
Here are the following steps:

  1. To access the FILE MANAGER, click on the words "File Manager" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. To move to a specific directory (folder), click on the icon next to the directory’s name
  3. To go back up to the previous directory you were in, click on "Up" one level
  4. To go back to your home directory, click on the "/" before the name of the current folder  

Troubleshooting: If you cannot figure out where you are, check the top of the File Manager to see your location. It will be next to (Current Folder).
