I don't know of any way to configure it. But in the "Files" section of cPanel you will see "Web Disk" and can download or see how to configure the operating system to use it.

The option you're looking for will be in cPanel (not the WHM end of things) and it's WebDisk. It's i the "Files" menu. It's very easy to setup and when done it makes your /home/username/ directory act as if it's a locally mounted drive. Very easy and you just drag & drop what you need to.

I've been using it on my server for a while now and it's quite nice.

I see. Thanks for the replies guys.

However - I got this running & it seems to be just a FTP client. I can't edit files directly like I would via network,

Am I missing somthing or is that the limit of this features functionality?
