Moving files from your local system to your site using
the File Manager
Moving files from your local system (your laptop or desktop
computer) to your site is called uploading. You can upload files
from your local system to your site using the File Manger section of the
Site Administrator control panel.
Note: If you are uploading files from a Microsoft Windows
system, be aware that the File Manager performs binary transfers; it does
not translate Windows text format to UNIX text format. HTML files are
not affected; however, scripts might not work properly when uploaded through
the File Manager. To ensure that scripts work properly, use an FTP
connection, rather than the File Manager, to upload script files.
To upload a file to the server using the File Manger:
the shortcuts area of the Home pageManage Files (File Manager section). The
directory list is displayed.
If necessary, drill down
to the directory in which you want to upload the file. If you are uploading
HTML content for your Web site, upload them to the directory /var/www/html.
If this directory does not already exist, create it though File Manager.
See the topic Creating additional directories
In the Upload
File to area of the Path form, in the upload field, enter the
complete path name of the file, or click Browse
to locate the file in your local system.
In the save as
field, enter the name of the file you want to upload to the server.
Note: Do not include the directory path in the file name;
include only the file name.
