Hello cPanel Community!

I administer a cPanel server, however I'm having problems using the File Manager. See, whenever I delete, copy or move files or folders via the cPanel File manager, it gives me a new tab, then displays a 404 Not Found Error.

Is there any way to fix this? The only solution I see is to reinstall the server, but I have lots of hosted sites so that would be a problem. The only thing I did was to upgrade to 11.26 RELEASE. It is now in 11.26 CURRENT, as I tried updating but it didn't work.

Any ideas how to solve this? Thanks.

Here's the error message I get:
Code:
Not Found

The server was not able to find the document (./frontend/x3/filemanager/copymove.html) you requested.
Please check the url and try again. You might also want to report this 
error to your web hosting provider.

Legacy File Manager works fine. The problem is the File Manager itself. I have the same error under ALL builds (I tried Stable, Release, Current and Edge).

I also tried switching themes, didn't work.

You don't mention if you've tried another browser or not.

If you're sure you've tried everything to narrow it down to a problem with your cPanel, and not a local issue on your end, the next stop might be to put in a bug report and let cPanel tech support take a closer look for you.

There's a link, top right corner of every page of the forums titled Bugs that you can use for that.

What Operating System, OS version, Internet browser, and browser version, are being used when the difficulty is experienced?

Is JavaScript disabled, or is JavaScript being restricted by the browser configuration and or other security software?

Are either of the buttons labeled "Copy" and "Move File" being clicked while holding down the "Control" (Ctrl) key on the computer keyboard? If yes, please know it is not necessary to hold this key when clicking either of these two buttons; rather, it is only necessary to hold down the "Control" (Ctrl) key if needing to drag-and-drop a file to be copied into a different directory, but the "Control" (Ctrl) key should be pressed only after clicking and holding the mouse click when the drag-and-drop copy action is performed.

For clarification, please try the following steps to copy or move a file:
  • Copy File(s) via cPanel File Manager
    1. Click-and-hold the file to be copied.
    2. Press-and-hold the "Control" (Ctrl) key on your keyboard to signal that the file will be copied.
    3. Drag-and-drop the file onto the desired directory or folder and then release the mouse click; the file should now be copied into the desired directory or folder.
  • Move File(s) via cPanel File Manager
    1. Click-and-hold the file to be moved.
    2. Drag-and-drop the file onto the desired directory or folder and then release the mouse click; the file should now be moved into the desired directory or folder.

I didn't press CTRL. Also, the copy/move drag and drop controls didn't work as well.

I might as well ask cPanel support. Thanks everyone.
