    I've been trying to upload files to my server for several days now, but I can't seem to be able to find any way to do this.

    after logging in, I get a page with alot of icons (says WHM at the top) but nothing to clue me into how to upload my my files and start having my site work.

    from reading in these forums I understand I need to have a file manager icon/link to upload my files, but I can't find one. Opening a ticket didn't help too much, as I was told I needed to install the file manager, some how.

    I'm hoping that you guys can help me more about this.

    thanks.

    WHM is the administrator interface while File Manager is available on cPanel accounts that can be created inside WHM.

    - Go to "List Accounts" and if you see any account, click cPanel icon you view for that account to log into cPanel. Once logged in, you will be able to see "File Manager".

    If you have not created a cPanel account,

    - Go to "Create a New Account", fill up account creation form and create an account.

    - Then, open http://yourserverip:2082 in the browser, enter the user/pass that you used while creating the account and you should be able to see File Manager.

    You can check tutorial below regarding File Manager.

    file_manager_demo

    Here is the official documentation for File Manager.

    I hope that helps.
