How can I upload files to File Manager?

In this article, you will learn how to upload files using File Manager.

Step 1. Log in to your WPX account.

You can log in to your WPX account here.

Step 2. Navigate to your hosting plan.

You can either find your hosting service through the navigation menu or within your dashboard. Once you log in to your WPX account select My Services (1) → WordPress Hosting (2).

Then you will see all of your hosting services with us. When you find the plan that you want to manage, you need to select the orange button Manage service.

Step 3. Open File Manager.

Now that you’re in the Hosting Panel, select the File Manager menu.

Step 4. Organization of your websites’ files

The files for every website are stored in their root directory. That directory is called public_html and every website has its own. The difference here is that the files for your Main website are stored in the public_html folder and every other website in your hosting panel has its directory stored in domains/nameofthesite/public_html

In the following screenshot, you can see how these folders are organized:

Step 5. Upload the files.

Navigate to the folder where you want the file to be uploaded. In our case, this will be the domains/wpxfilemanager.com/public_html folder:

Then select the File (1) menu from the top bar and after that Upload Files (2):

After you select the Upload Files option from the drop-down menu, you need to select the file that you want to upload (1). When it’s selected simply press Open (2):

After that, you’ll see a notification (1) in the downright corner that the upload was successful and you’ll be able to see the uploaded file (2) in the file list:

Note: You can’t upload folders; if you want to upload a folder, you must archive it first and then upload it.
Please, keep in mind that there is a 1GB upload limit per file.

That’s it. You’ve successfully uploaded a file via File manager. If you want to upload another file you can follow again the steps in the article.
