Creating a new folder (file manager)
Posted by Roy Petersen on Feb-15-2007 12:16 PM

Folders are a very useful way of adding organization and structure to your web site. They make maintenance of the site much easier, as you can easily see what files are in which folder. Most web sites include at least an /image folder to keep all the image files separate from the HTML files.

To create a new folder using file manager: Find the "File Manager" icon on the main cPanel page and click it.

  1. Navigate to the area in which you will create the new folder by clicking on the folder icons next to the directory names.

  2. Click on the Create New Folder link.

  3. Enter the name of the new folder in the available field in the top-right hand corner of the browser window.

  4. Click on the Create button. The new folder will appear in the main display area on the left.
